First attempt at spinning with a drop spindle. The fiber isn't breaking, but goes through various periods of thickening and thinning in places. I intend to use this roving as my practice roving and then once I get the hang of it, move on to the others. Great class, great instructor. Thank you Drucilla, this will make crocheting so much more satisfying!
