Hand Spun

One of my Christmas presents from my mom was a drop spindle and some roving so I can learn to hand spin my own yarn. While I have not anywhere near mastered the art of hand spinning… yet… I have mastered the art of shopping for roving on Etsy. My first purchase was from a fellow member of AREtsy, The Twisted Purl. I’ve been eying a couple of items from her shop but didn’t want to get ahead of myself and purchase the roving before I had a drop spindle. Rest assured, her roving was the first thing I purchased after Christmas.

I heard the mailman leave something at the front door today and almost tripped down the stairs to go see what it was. It was a package from Conway, AR! I was too excited to even be careful while opening it. Inside were the two things I ordered, some bonus hand painted roving, and some wonderful Etsy things. I’m telling myself that I must wait until I get better at spinning before making these into yarn, but it’s going to be hard to wait.

If you are into knitting or hand spinning your own yarn, I recommend visiting Cyndi’s shop – you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I’m so jealous! The roving is GORGEOUS. I’m not a spinner, but I’ve done a teeny bit of felting, and handling roving is just delicious.

  2. You are too sweet Erin! Thank you so much for posting such nice things about my fiber and shop. Can’t wait to see the fun things you spin up!By the way, your pictures throughout your whole blog are so gorgeous!
