For Christmas (already over three months ago, wow!) I got a very exciting present. A drop spindle! And I got started learning and practicing with it almost immediately, and I must say I've fallen in love. The whole process is extremely relaxing and the result is, of course, thrilling, because it's yarn. :D And you all know my feelings for yarn.
This is my favorite fiber I've spun so far, a alpaca merino blend. And oh is it delicious! Plus the color is lovely, and it's soft but strong. I dragged it everywhere while I was spinning it because I just didn't want to stop.
An up close on it's woolly goodness...
