I have big plans for these little two babies, but I reckon they’ll have to wait at least another two to three weeks. Yes, I have something in mind but I’m not telling.

  1. I so like the sugar pie colour combination!
    I’m still curious how spinning works.. Is there another device attached to it? Or just spinning alone using the spinner?

  2. Elaine: The device is called a spindle and basically it works by twisting the fibre. First you predraft a fibre – basically this means loosening and fluffing it up – kind like separating a ball of cotton wool into nearly transparent balls of cotton wool fluff. The fibres are hooked up to the spindle via a leader yarn attached to it and you flick the spindle to give it a turning motion which then travels up the fibre. And voila! You have yarn! 🙂 You can google Youtube for more videos on this to get a clearer picture.
