Anyone working on anything? by Olwyn.Mary

Spinning by Kirsten Watson
Dear everyone I have recently taken up spinning. I'm still very excited about this move, and very pleased to discover that it's not eating into my knitting/crochet time as much as I thought. I'm just plying my first ball of yarn now, so will be able to see how I'm doing. I'm using an Ashford...
