Every year, I set knitting goals for myself – this past year, I wanted to learn how to knit fair-isle and socks, both of which I’ve successfully checked off of my to-do list. This upcoming year, one of my goals is to learn how to spin wool into yarn. I put this Turkish drop-spindle on my Christmas list for Santa this year, along with a little Corriedale roving:
Each year that I knit, I want to get one step closer to the sheep – eventually, I’d like to go from shearing and scouring all the way to wearing a finished knitted project. Maybe one day I will even have a sheep of my own! I am looking for a good book on spinning – let me know if you have any suggestions.
Have a great weekend! ~J
