I wanted to try and spin every day this week to practice. I think there was only one day that I didn't spin! Even if it was for 10 minutes, I spun every day.
I'm getting better. Not where I would like to be, but definitely better. At least my yarn is consistently inconsistent, because the spindle only started to wobble once and since then its been balanced enough to not wobble at all.
Because I have been so good, and Verizon now issues their rebates via Visa gift card, I decided that I was due a treat. So I went to the local yarn shop on my way to work today (and today was a holiday and I am on vacation next week, so this was supposed to be the start of my vacation, also a reason why I think I deserved a treat).
The roving is by the same company as the one I am currently spinning. Its BFL and the colors are just awesome! I also wanted to try out a top whorl spindle, the one I am using now is a Turkish spindle. While there I found this book as well. I have come to the conclusion that some of the best books are the least attractive looking!
