A small revolution

I have recently discovered just how much fun spinning yarn could be (albeit a difficult thing to do while relaxing, watching telly*). I'd seen it done on telly before but had never quite been able to figure out how those magic women made all that fluff stick together into string.

I'm glad to say, now I know!

This is my second ever skein of yarn, spun on a drop spindle with merino roving from the lovely people at Kraft Mania on ebay.ie
using a warm orange and a russety brown from their colour collection. I then plyed the yarn I had spun and got this lovely two-tone effect.

*Other people in the room may get annoyed with all the movement...
