knitsies:

i waant to get into spinning pretty soon. any advice on how to start/get my feet wet?????

So much advice!

1. Start with a spindle.  There are lots of guides online on how to make a super cheap DYI drop spindle, but I would recommend starting with a Turkish Drop Spindle, since this will make a center pull ball for you, which simplifies the plying process considerably.  You can get a relatively cheap one on knitpicks or etsy!

2. Start with combed top or roving (either undyed or dyed by a professional dyer).  Don’t try to dye anything yourself when you start, because even a small amount of felting when you first start can be extremely difficult to deal with.  You can also start with a batt (a slightly different preparation of wool) - this is fine, though I wouldn’t start with any art or chunky batts that have many different textures/fibers.  The idea is to start with the most even and easy fiber to spin possible so you can focus on learning the actual motions.

3. Park and draft!  This involves putting your spindle down, drafting the wool, and then twirling the spindle to add twist, then putting the spindle down again, etc.  Don’t try to do too much in the beginning, since this will result in your spindle dropping a LOT.  

4. Ply your first yarn.  Experienced spinners can make low-twist singles that operate as balanced yarns and are appropriate for knitting or crocheting.  You won’t be able to do this on your first yarns.  So set out with the idea of plying and you will get a nicer finished product.

5. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t like your first yarn!  People improve a LOT on their first 5 yarns, it’s kind of insane.  Here are my first 5 in order:

I obviously didn’t write a guide on HOW to spin, but those are all over the web.  Let me know if you have any questions when you actually embark on the mission!
