Early in November I set myself a challenge to spin for 10 hours. To recap on the challenge you can view the original post.
I did not reach my target of 10 hours due to various other commitments and other things coming up. The one thing that came out of it is that I have increased the amount of time I spent at the spinning wheel and also seen an improvement in the end product which was my aim.
I managed to achieve a total of 4 hours at the spinning wheel and completed 1 skein of yarn.
Here is a picture of the first skein I ever produced at my spinning class ...
The first skein I produced at home on my little westbury wheel...
and finally the skein I produced in November...
I intend to continue spending time at the wheel spinning up yarn and to motivate me I signed up to Hilltop Cloud new fibre club (the first lot of fibre arrived at the weekend! So excited more on that another day) so once a month a new batch of fibre will arrive and hopefully encourage me to get to the spinning wheel and produce some yarn, (I wont say beautiful yarn as I have lots of improving to do). I hope to be able to actually make something with the yarn I spin one day!
I have managed to update my fibre stash on ravelry if you want to take a look.
I shall keep you posted on my spinning adventures.
