My first attempt was with some hot pink yarn left over from socks knitted for my niece. Unfortunately with only two rows to go I ran out of yarn. Started all over again with a different skein of sock yarn. Gosh, I can't remember buying Confetti Shepherd Sock ... not a color I would normally buy and I only have one skein (well only 1/3 of a skein now).
If I must crochet then I had to treat myself to something I've been longing to do ... spin. This interesting (and easy to spin) pencil roving and Lady Barbara spindle were gifts from Gnomiejo. Thanks again Naomi ... you're right this spindle is wonderful.
And the bag is from Michale. She made it! And it's perfect for this spinning project. Thanks!
