Guess what? The yarn does not wind itself on the long skinny thing. I have no pictures of that adventure because there was nothing to see, but me being ugh.
I did read the booklet it came with, but somehow I still didn't get it. I found a video on YouTube and voila!! Duh!
This roving came with the spindle and it was long and thin. The YouTube gal had a poof of fiber behing her. That will be me someday.
This little bit took quite awhile to gather. I kept dropping the spindle and having to redo and rewind. I think it looks pretty good.
Now what? I'll have to find another YouTube video.
This is hand dyed and by the looks of it, hand spun too. I'm making a scarf. Garter stitch ends and stockinette in the middle.
