While cleaning yesterday, I came across some REALLY old little skeins. I’ll admit, there was a slight wince at some of them; there was some WAY over spun, some WAY WAY overplied, and then others that were just an unfortunate use of the colorway.
…which isn’t to say that I don’t still do this, but I digress.
So up top is the very first yarn I spun, ever. It’s some purple Wensleydale that was gifted to me from a very good friend. It was this gift, in fact, that prompted me into learning to spin in the first place! So thanks, Geoff.
The plied one is my first plied yarn ever. The other is my first yarn on a wheel. I… like to think I’ve improved, but I know I’ll always keep these skeins as reminders and points to look back on for reference as I continue to learn.
In the spirit of appreciating how far I’ve come, I’m also going to point out that Ariadne Yarns is now a year old! And as such, for the rest of January, we’ll be offering 15% off with this coupon code here: HAPPYBDAYTOUS
So for those who’ve bought from us, thank you! And for those who’ve just commented on all the pretty yarns we’ve made, ALSO thank you! We hope to continue with the shop for another great year, after all ^_^
