I got the roving at Lisa's Knits. It's BFL in the colorway South Pacific.

I got my Schacht Hi-Lo Spindle at Spunky Electic


Love it all!!!

Gorgeous!

I pulled mine out Saturday because I had a wee bit of fiber I needed to spin -- they really are fabulous spindles. I'm glad you like it!

I went to Spunky Eclectic's shop last Saturday. I stumbled on her site by accident last week and then I realized that she lives about an hour and a half from me so I decided to go see her stuff in person. She had so many beautiful spindles...and fiber...and yarn. I spent a lot of money.

I want to learn to spin, what do you reccomend, I know she has lots of kits, but wanted y'alls opinion. thanks. And how many yards can you get out of 4 oz of roving? I understand that it depends on how thin/thick you spin, but I'm just curious. Also is there a website or book that will teach me?
