Post Seventy-Six: Spindle!

The Mango is about to join the ranks of spinners worldwide. Friday I acquired a little Louet drop spindle kit with a little wooden top-whorl spindle and a half pound of wool roving in natural, medium-brown, and dark brown/black. Also instructions and a tiny little sample bottle of wool wash, which kinda spilled in the bottom of the box some time ago, but still has some left in it.

Anywho, I'll be getting started learning tomorrow, or tonight if I get ambitious. It was decided a while ago that my goal for the summer would be to learn to spin. So here I am. Here's hoping for passable yarn by August!

Also, since I've noticed a backlog of craft projects sitting around my room, I'm not starting any new ones until the whole queue I've got now is finished. With the exception of spinning practice, of course. So on this list I've got:
...yeah, so it's gonna be a while before Mango can take on anything new. Ah well. I've got enough to keep me busy.

I'm going to try my best to keep this better updated, honestly. There'll be pictures of the spindle as soon as I get some yarn(ish-looking things) on it.

I'm really inspired together with your [url=]akley australia[/url] writing talents and also with the structure for your weblog. [url=]akley australia[/url] , Is that this a paid topic or did you customize it your self? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it??s uncommon to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
