Can't put the Drop Spindle down!

Working at the farmer's market you get to meet a lot of interesting people, and this past Saturday I me a woman who spins yarn! She and her husband make drop spindles and roving, along with teaching. So, I met her through another seller at the market and next thing you know I'm buying a beginner kit and staring to spin. I never realized that it could be so fun! I hate to put it down and I've already gone through one 2 oz bag of roving and I'm on my second.

I jumped the gun a bit and didn't dye the roving before I started to spin, but I have six jars of dye coming in the mail and I'll be ready to due my next batch of roving before spinning. I'm looking forward to bright super colorful yarn!
