Joyfully Spinning

Lori, a student in my Spinning I class learned more about using her wheel last night and managed to get a skein plied and wet-set as well.  This is her very first finished yarn, slightly damp, but all hers.

Lori skein

She was very proud of it and had enough of the blue and white still to make another skein to go with this one.  Looking at it, we both believe she has enough to knit a hat from it.

I love helping a person create their first real yarn.  It is very satisfying to see their joy and to see their pride in their accomplishment.  And she has homework, too.  Work more on plying and to spin a multi-colored single to learn Navajo plying next month.  She’s going to do just fine.
