My best Christmas present this year...

was this...
I was really very pleased indeed. But it's not called a Drop Spindle for nothing, so I've needed a bit of help along the way. First, the lovely Rachel lent me her spindle to practise on (thank you!), and I managed a very, very small amount of spun yarn. It was slightly - okay, very - rustic, but spun nonetheless. Then the lovely Jo brought her own spindle along (thank you!) and sat and spun her own gorgeous laceweight while giving me some hints and tips, and lo, see what we have now:
Yay! Still very rustic, but if thick and thin's good enough for Noro, I'm pretty sure it's good enough for me.
