I took a fabulous learn-to-spin class last weekend at Lint from John Wise. I really had fun and want to spin some more with all the roving we got but sadly, have had no time. :(
The bottom photo shows more clearly what I made in class: the white is a two-ply Finn wool, the middle two are single plies (fiber from Lisa Souza - I think John said it was Blue Faced Leicester), and the green is a single-ply Shetland wool. As you can see, I've pretty much mastered uneven, thick and thin yarn. But John said to enjoy this phase because as you progress, it gets harder to be inconsistent on purpose. We'll see about that!
