Beautiful! It is wonderful well. Lovely yarn—gorgeous! Canst thee imagine me at the sewing machine? Making up dresses in 2003? Dost I look the part of a tailor? O, but I did try. . . This is just something the auld kranie (Scots Brogue=old man) would not be able to do. It was difficult enough to try to make up the dresses. But ye, keep this going!! ;)

This was my first yarn on the drop spindle. This would've been in April 2011. I got the wheel for Christmas last year.

I tried spinning on both the wheel and drop spindle once...much more difficult than I had guessed! I still have my very lumpy little ball of yarn :) Very nice Mackenzie!

Simply amazing!! I find sewing (I had hoped on being the tailor in our home like Jacob Amman was, who was the founder of the Amish in Alsace/Loraine in 1693) hard enough. I know I could never do spinning. I looks great though, I tell thee the truth! Keep up the good work!!! Excellent job. . . give not up!

Yes, I do. I also sometimes spin on a drop spindle when I'm out and about.

This looks difficult to me and complicated, but I really like it though!! Do ye still spin like this? A great pic. :)
