Greetings from my corner of the world

Hi everyone!

My corner of the world? Oh it's Norway. Yes another Norwegian spinner joining the group, thanks to Rhonna for inviting me.

I'm a new spinner. I made my own CD-spindle some weeks ago and bought a Louet low whorl from our local net shop. Now I'm eagerly waiting for a Bosworth midi. I'm also booked for a spinning wheel weekend class in september and I will buy a wheel then too. Right now I'm spinning some lamb wool to thin singles (getting them more and more even) and I'm going to try plying them when the spindles are full. I Blog my things at feel free to visit ;)

I'm also a knitter and want to use my yarn right away...But I'm saving some of the yarn in a journal with the details.

Here is a picture of one of my current spinnings:

It's merino fibre and on my louet spindle.
