CREATIVE JUICES ARE GO

So I actually did something crafty today:

This is my second attempt at spinning.  Would you like to see the first?

Absolutely terrible, right?  I did this two years ago and I was so discouraged when it turned out like this that I left it on the spindle.  What a thick, clumpy mess; it's been sitting on my shelf looking pathetic all this time.  I'm so proud of myself for picking it back up and being able to do it right without even struggling.  I plan on spinning the rest of my white roving, spinning yellow and then black so it makes a striping effect when knitted, and then plying the two together.  It's going to be gorgeous. ;A;

I've got my crafting mojovation back, Ren!  I'll be finishing your hat tonight!

Because I know nothing about anything, I actually thought the before shot looked really nice. |'D IT LOOKS SO SOFT. Though yeah I suppose it would be hard to actually /knit/ with, so I can see why you went to go take care of that.. :U;;

KNITTING MODE ACTIVATE.

My first attempt was basically just twisted wool roving. Not my best. I learned the other day that you have to spread out/stretch the roving width-wise so not as much is spun at once. It seems so obvious now. I AM QUITE THE MASTER NOW. U:
