Since I uncovered this basket of romney locks I have enjoyed using my drop spindle again. I gave it up about a year ago when I wanted to learn how to use my spinning wheel, and not wanting to aggravate my left hand as much.
It is going well as long as I don't spin more than an hour at each sitting-and that's tops probably should cut it down to 30 minutes. I do alternate with flicking the locks and then spinning.
I really enjoy this, my yarn is still not real even, especially the joins and I have allot of joins with spinning each lock. I need to search on you tube for techniques on improving that.
I am missing my spinning wheel too-I need to take the time to stain my new jumbo flyer kit, put that together and get it on my wheel-I am anxious to try out making bulky art yarn too-looks fun to make.
