Look what you did!! You have YARN!!! Good job!!
:woohoo: :cheering: :woot: :yay:
People will tell you the first month or two of spinning is the hardest. For some it is, for others it is not.
Once you get your spindle, try to spin at least 10-15 minutes a day to build up drafting skills & muscle memory.
Remember, there is never, ever only one right way to do anything in the fiber arts! You will find the technique that fits you ... and it may change for different fleeces.
You may want to try a wheel some day, you might not. Don't let anyone ever tell you a wheel is somehow better than a spindle. It isn't ... it's only a different tool to obtain the same result. When people say that a wheel can spin more yarn faster than a spindle what they are really saying is they are not proficient on a spindle. Anything you can do on a wheel, you can do on a spindle ... and I have yet seen a person carry a wheel and spin at the same time like you can do with a spindle!
I've been known to carry a spindle with me and spin yarn while waiting in a line some place. Sure, it gets stares and occasional comments, but what a great way to talk to folks about the fiber arts!! (Did I mention I was a Fiber Enabler? :teehee: )
Keep it up! You're doing great!! :inlove:
