Somehow, I found my groove when I spun the merino. I went back to spinning BFL today and was pretty happy with the results!
Before I show you my last bobbin, let's take a retrospective look at my first bobbin:
It was a slubby mess.
Now, here's today's attempt:
I'm getting the hang of it! Also, the single treadle is just fine, so I don't think I'll upgrade to a double treadle anytime soon.
Now, what do I do with all this fiber I'm spinning? I want to spin more than I want to knit - after all, I learned how to drop spindle before I even thought about picking up the pointy sticks. Hmmm, I better figure out soon before I have a stash mountain!
