Drop Spindle- Sweater From Scratch Video 3

This Sweater From Scratch project is taking a long time! I am currant in the middle of actually making yarn now with my drop spindle. I made a video since it is a lot easier to show you how it works than try and explain it. 

I knew this project would take a long time but I didn't realize just how long. After hours of spinning I don't even have one entire skein of yarn yet!!! But spinning on the drop spindle is actually rather calming. Kind of like knitting but without a pattern to worry about. 

Have you tried using a drop spindle or any way of spinning your own yarn? Share your experience in the comments below. And helpful hints are always welcome. 

Happy Crafting!
