What else can I add
Ok, so I am pretty much a novice when it comes to all things spinning, but I am sure having a ball!!! I don't know the low-down on the ratios, I don't know the names of the parts on the wheel, and I am not sure what good it does when I screw tight or loosen the leather strap. That said, I decided that working on the basics would have to wait and stepped right up to the plate and tried something a little more advanced.
BEADS!!! I spun beads into the yarn when I plied it and it looks pretty dang cool! Now the mind is going crazy with new ideas for other things to spin with the ply. After seeing a few ideas from that Handspun Revolutions book I am eager to try some nifty new stuff!! Stay tuned for more pictures :)
