After nearly a year of sort of trying to spin and thinking how very hard it was, I bought some new roving. Grey Romney, not the softest stuff in the world, but I’m loving it. Its so very easy to draft, and all the time I though I was such a horrible spinner, it was just that I had bad roving. I have about an ounce of it spun into a very even yarn, and once I get a bit more finished, I’m thinking about plying it together. :)

I’ve had a spindle and a beautiful blue roving in my closet for well over a year now. After about 20 minutes of fuzzy blue failure, I decided that spinning wasn’t really my thing anyways and put it away until I hopefully forgot how awful I was at it. Well the time has now come. In accordance with my goal of getting rid of anything I’m not using, I’ve decided to try spinning again. Of course, you couldn’t expect me to discard something with the potential to be knitted, even if I have absolutely no use for it. So I’ll give it another try. Wish me luck!
