I'm pretty new to spinning on a wheel and am very happy with my recent results so i thought i'd show off a little
These are some samples and random mixed up domestic top, mill ends and whatever else i grabbed outta the stash. It was just an experiment that came out well! It's 2 ply and somewhere around a DK weight.
..and a close up.
Mill ends that i hand dyed with Wiltons Icing colors then over dyed with magenta for a brighter pink. (This photo is really acurate to color. It really is that candy-bright-ripe pof a pink!) Spun the thinest single that i was able and Navajo plyed it to get approx 100 yards of 3 ply in weight ranging from lace to sport. I was really happy with the way this one came out. Fairly even.
Thick and thin worsted/bulky weight mill ends. Soooo soft! This was my fist attempt at spinning mill ends so this was the tester. There's about 60 yards of 2 ply.
Meet "American Music". So far i have about 300 ayrds of this yarn and when i'm done spinning all the roving there should be about 600 yards. I dyed the roving with Wiltons and came out with this glorious colorway! This is the first yarn that i felt like it was good enough to name so i named it after a song that makes me sing at the top of my lungs. It's 2 ply and about DK weight, maybe a lilttle thinner in some spots and there are a few "fat" spots as well.
....and a 2nds skein of it. Those needles are US7s so you get the idea of the yarn's size.
