With my layoff at a difficult time of year to get new employment, I have been trying to achieve balance. I got my spinning wheel just before Christmas and I've been practicing with some inexpensive wool that I purchased for a felting process. It's been going fairly well.
But I went to do the two ply process by reverse spinning two threads together and the spinning wheel would not cooperate. I got creative and figured out a way to finish the two ply process until I could get the spinning wheel fixed.
I wound the 2 ply yarn around a yogurt container for safe keeping. Progress!
