Hi everyone
Hi new here and first post. So new I have not taken time to check out other threads yet. but will before the day is over.
I have crocheted for ever... since I was about 9 yrs old. I have taken up knitting also. (pretty recent on that one!)(couple of yrs).
I made my self a drop spindle and have fiber ordered , it should be here tomorrow. In the mean time I wanted fiber NOW. so I went to hobby lobby and bought a small package of the wool for felting... Not the same I am sure but I needed to try this spinning out. It seems to be reeling me in with a strong calling for some reason.
My first question is..... how do you know if you have over twisted the fibers? this is folding back and twisting onto its self when I am not pulling with tension. I am sure I will be trying the "real" stuff the second it is delivered.
