it started as a cloud

Oh no, I'm hooked again.  I took a spinning class and fell in love with it, not the exercise kind of spinning class, but the kind of spinning class where you spin wool into yarn.






I had to set the twist of the yarn.  I first soaked it in warm/hot water and a little bit of dish soap.

Then I soaked it in warm/hot water in vinegar.  The last process was soaking it in just plain clear water so that your yarn won't smell like a salad.

Now it's hanging to dry.


It's not the most even, but for my first time I was pretty excited.  I have enough yarn to make Mr a hat.

Hang dry

And to think it all started as a cloud.
