You want to knit? Then you need wool!

And how do you get wool to knit?

 Why, you spin of course!
After finishing with all the wool I brought home from class, I started with a lovely Shetland/Silk mix, wondering if I had not chosen something a bit too difficult. Patience, predrafting and splitting the combed top gave me a bit more controll, but still, I now know exactly where the "drop" part of "drop spindle" came from.....
