I loved Abby's comment about basically falling off the face of the planet. I will try not to. =) It might worry some family members that read.
I had a hard time when I started to spin. The yarn (used broadly here) came out lumpy and bumpy or it kept breaking. Then it dawned on me that I was using a roving that gave me a very hard time when I was learning to hand spin. I bought this stuff at Rhinebeck because I was told it was great stuff to learn with. Well basically I switched to other leftover stuff and it was much easier. After I spun that little bit of left over I dove right in to my roving. (cause well that what I do dive right in)

I did all of that mostly yesterday and yes my hands are sore. Nothing like over doing it on your first try. I have no clue how much of each I have but when I get my swift I will figure out how much I do have.
I received this in the mail. It is yarn from Yarning Yenta. It is Animal from her Muppet collection
She also included a stitch marker with the order. =)
No knitting has been done, I wonder why? =)
