In Progress: Learn a New Craft

Alright, I bought myself a spinning wheel for my birthday (used Ashford Traditional) and have my grandma’s wheel out getting repaired. I am in the process of learning how to spin on the new-to-me Ashford Traditional. Well, so far I suck. I mean, I suck so bad that I’m not even going to show a picture of my first yarn, if one could even call it yarn. Part of the problem is that, while I can certainly keep the wheel going pretty steadily without spinning yarn, it’s a Lot harder to keep the wheel going WITH yarn. So I have to use one hand to keep the wheel going, and then only one hand is available for spinning and that doesn’t work too good. Yeah, so I suck. But I’m going to keep at it.
