Spinning Lace Alpaca

Here I am drafting and spinning some lace weight Alpaca yarn, what a lot of fun.

My teacher Wonder Mike, I learned at the Fall Knitting Retreat 2008, then took two more classes the past two weeks as you have seen my other homespun.

Cannot imagine lace weight spinning. I have ham hands and have trouble enough. . . Spin ON!

The World's a blast. Ka-Whoosh, Ka-Whish. With healthy soul and belly. And all the skies are full of fish, and all the fish are smelly!

Is a matter of practice, no matter how big your hands are, unless you are Hagrit lol!

I have rather hammy hands too and it doesn't really stop me from spinning fine, laceweight yarns. In fact I'm hand-spindling some now (not alpaca, though)...Andy...always love how you teach with your blog posts and pictures...thanks.

Thank You Joe, I enjoy showing pictures as I am a very visual person.

Yowza! Another great spindling post. That light brown ought to make some nice knitting. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
