Look, Ma, I'm Spinning.
Today was lesson two in spinning on Opal's Majacraft Suzie Pro. She gave me some nice Superwash BFL to practice on. Thanks, Opal! I studied some books and some you tubes. This time I tried drafting with my right hand since I'm so very right-handed and that's how I draft when I drop spindle.
I forget to keep drafting toward the orifice and hold on to the fiber too tightly resulting in the yarn not feeding in and winding on the bobbin. I do get some funky corkscrews which Opal refers to as "art" yarn. She tells me it's nice...liar, lol.
One thing I found to be true is that she does indeed have a very manly looking cat named Sammy. I saw him twice and he gave me a look. I'm not going to pass judgement on the cat, though.
Opal was working on one of her amazing bead creations.
