I got a drop spindle for Christmas and a bunch of fiber and I am absolutely loving it. I just wanted to share with you guys because I only learned about drop spindles a few months ago and before that I had no idea they existed. I had never known that you could spin on anything other than a spinning wheel so I had never considered it as something possible for me to do even though I would have loved to do it. Drop spindles are inexpensive and can produce the same quality of yarn that a spinning wheel can. The process of spinning is much easier than I would have imagined. I'm having so much fun making yarn it's all I want to do right now! I really must get some sort of fiber animal someday. What started as a simple hobby has really turned into a passion. I love everything about the process of knitting and spinning!] This was my first hank, which I'm calling "The World's Tiniest, Ugliest Hank" I can't wait to spin this. Those colors! And you wouldn't believe how soft it is.
