Yesterday was a good mail day....I finally got my drop spindle kit, and my Lanaset dye sampler came too. I took pics of the drop spindle kit, but my Flash card reader is on the fritz so I have to wait for Hubby to upload them for me.

I spent about an hour last night playing with the drop spindle and I'm just barely starting to get the hang of it...I'm still using the park and draft method of spinning, which seems easier for me to get the hang off. I discovered that I'm using way too much fiber, so I really need to predraft and predraft some more. Most of the rovings I got with the kit are white so I will probably spend some time this weekend dying them with the Lanaset dyes.
