i've been bit in the spinner!

I don't remember if i bragged about the silk caps i bought on etsy a while back, but they are super lovely, and i can't wait to use them.
i got a lot of freebies with my order of this silk cap, so i'm going to use them to perfect my spinning with silk before i move on to this beauty, out of which i may make a light scarf or hat to give to some one special.

I am waiting on a sample of wool that i will use to get the technique down, but i'm already hearing the drop spindle call my name.
i may have spun the ugliest length of yarn you ever will see. and so as not to make myself look too bad, i'm only showing it to you on the spindle.

I haven't had much time online lately- i've been reading a lot more than usual, but when i am, i'm searching for info on how to use a drop spindle- how to draft and how to finish the yarn.

if you've got a good blog that shows how, or a site that may help, please leave me a comment so i can check it out.

pretty soon i'll be a pro and will be able to wish you happy spinning as well as crocheting =-)
