rovings and spindles

Well I thought I'd like to take the plunge to making my own yarn... why not??
I just bought some roving.... just natural so I can dye it myself too!!
I'm going to buy the "things" to make my own drop spindle this weekend.
I'm planning on making it pretty, so that will help pass the time while the roving is being shipped, dyed and dried.
this looks like a good "how to" I'm sure there are hundreds of them out there... just have to find what works good for me... and if there's any of you out there who know about spinning with a drop spindle... please give me a shout!!
later gators

Hi there, thanks for the comment! Yes, it's very easy to make a drop spindle. I'll post instructions on my blog today!

Ooooooh I want to spin my own yarn! My sister has a spinning wheel and has never used it. Maybe one day I will learn and just borrow it when I am up there. Mind you they still have to sheer their sheep too to get wool that way! lol
