Spinning!

I recently purchased a spindle kit off of ebay. It is a very cute little spindle that was hand painted. See:

On the underside it has the artist's name and the year Posted by Hello

As you can see Andy thought it was very nice as well. I've had it now for a few weeks but had a miserable first attempt. I promptly shoved it back into the bag it came in and wondered what all the fuss was about spinning. So yesterday I was reading blogs and I saw what Sweetgeorgia has been up to and decided to give it another shot.

I was successful this time!! I am so excited. I have a bunch more roving to spin. I am going to spin a bit more then make an attempt at plying. Here's what I managed to get done

In other news the Chanel exhibit was excellent, small, but excellent. We went a second day to see the Max Ernst exhibit. It was awesome! As you can see Dali was very influenced by him. He was also one of the main artists in the DaDa movement.

Regarding the NBaT along, I saw that Theresa of Spelling Tuesday is planning on using All Seasons Cotton for the Nothing but a T-Shirt and I just so happen to have20 balls of that so I thought I would give that a try first. Do a little destashing :)

I have just bought a spindle too! I got mine on E-Bay uk and it was made by the man who runs the Isle of Skye Toy Museum. It came with instructions and a bit of roving but the instructions are very basic so I am going to try and find some better ones on the net before I attempt anything. Your spinning looks great i only hope mine is half as good
