I’ve started spinning…

First, I tried spinning on a friend of a friend’s wheel. It went meh.


Next, i got the Louet Drop Spindle Kit. This is my first handspun and plied attempt.


It’s terribly inconsistent but actually plying some singles helped me know what to do next…I press onward.



About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.

    Kristy Lamb, that is GORGEOUS spinning. I’m impressed. You’re going to outdo me! Besides, inconsistent yarn is in vogue now – you could sell the stuff!
