Spinning - Lookie what just arrived!

Two spindles and a pretty, pretty roving was waiting for me when I got home from work today. Well, technically, I had to go pick them up, but since the post office is just around the corner, and I needed to go to the store anyway, it wasn't much of a hassle.

I'm a bit busy today and tomorrow, working on my [community profile] megaflare_ff fic, but when I can take a breather from that on Saturday, I'll give spinning a go.

In which there are wool and cross-spindles... )

Spinning - A new adventure...

I'm waiting for my first drop spindles and fibre. I've been considering trying my hand at spinning for a while, because I want to make custom yarns, but I never got around to it until now.

Of course, with NaNoWriMo coming up, there probably won't be too much spinning done here until December. Still, it's always fun to try out something new, and who knows, I might add another craft skill to my repertoire in a while.

(I'm sure it wouldn't surprise anyone that I intend to make fandom-inspired yarns if I can manage it. I have so many ideas, and so little time.)
