Spinning and CB

Last night I learned how to use a Drop Spindle. I will post pictures soon.

I received a homework assignment. I have a small bag of raw wool. When I say raw, it is shaved from the sheep, grass, straw and all. It have to be cleaned and washed before it gets to be prepped.

The CB sweater had problems. The sleeves were not turning out right. One was wider than the other, and they were both too wide. So they sleeves were frogged. Instead of picking up 126 stitches, I and only picking up 100. My Spinning teacher is a experienced knitter, and gave me a couple of suggestions. I get the best pictures outside, and it is dark out,
