Spinners Hook and Spinning

One of the hardest things that I am trying to teach myself is to spin yarn.
It is not as easy as it looks, my hands don't want to do what I tell them, they have a mind of their own.
I took the time to make a spinners hook, which pulls the started thread through the orifice of the spinning wheel. Something new to think about making now.
I friend gave me bags of Alpaca fibers of all different colors and I am learning to wash, clean, and comb the fibers, it is fun!
But spinning is a different story, will keep you up to date on things.

I am still working on my fiber piece for the show coming up July - August.
Keep stitching,
