Here is my son’s first attempt at spinning his own yarn! It is a green wool blend that he picked out of my collection himself. It is a collaborative work, sometimes I treadled while he drafted and sometimes he tried doing both himself. This fiber was a challenge to draft, I think we will try something a little more slippery next time. He was very patient with the whole process and I think he made great improvements as he went along. We are going to take on the Take a Stitch Tuesday Challenge next, because I have been terribly lax at keeping up on that.
