The start of my spinning adventure!!!

So I was looking through Instagram photos and ran up on drop spinning. I was immediately intrigued so I looked at the group on and started browsing and learning. I learned alot from the group and from Youtube videos. I talked to my man and we decided that I should give it a try so he ordered me a starter kit.
I have to say it is a lot harder than it looks. My first Lil spin was on the thick uneven side.
My second attempt is coming out a lot better. It is alittle overspun in some areas but I live it.
Here is a final pic of the yarn while twist are being set.
I am becoming addicted to spinning. Can not wait to get more roving and continue.

Fantastic find and WIP updates!!!!

It has been a little while since my last post so thought I would do an update. But first I have to so my stitchy mail from last month. I found some wonderful hand dyed floss from a Facebook group. The name is Fiberlicious and I am in love. I can not wait to get more.

Now to my updates!! To go along with this floss here is the start of my skull stitched in Vampire Raspberry from Fiberlicious.

Next up is my portrait of me and my man. Not much done in it.

Next is my blackwork piece. Still loving my color choice!

Lastly is my large project that I just can't put down this week.

Well that is all I have for now hope you all have a wonderfully week.
