A Lesson Learned

I learned a lesson today. It does not matter the price of the roving so much as the quality of the roving or the dyer. Yes the last 4 skeins of yarn were turned into art yarn not out of choice but out of necessity.

The last batch of roving looked very pretty but was felted in spots. This lead to thick and thin yarn, like a brand new spinner. The experts said my spinning would never look like my first wheel spins. Wrong. Kathy said that I would run across roving like this. She was so right. Another thing I found out was spinning semi felted roving hurts my hands with all the tugging necessary to come up with some semblance of yarn. Thus I have spun my first art yarn. All 4 skeins look different. A a valuable lesson learned.

Now it is time to get to bed. Night all.
