1  My first yarn!...ish...[PICTURES INCLUDED] in Spinning: Completed Projects by Parade on: September 23, 2008 02:34:56 PM
It looks pretty wonky, but I finally spun my first yarn!

I know why it's wonky; let's just say that 1lb of Merino is a lot to draft. And yes, stupid me tried to pre-draft the entire pound at once. I certainly didn't spin it all at once...it didn't take me long to realize just how fragile and finicky roving can be. Needless to say, there are some really thin parts and some really thick parts, but I can totally see why you guys love spinning so much! It's so much FUN!

I only managed pictures while she was still on the spindle, but as soon as she finishes drying, I'll post pictures of the finished product. Here she is, in all her awkward and newb-cake glory!







In all honesty, I wasn't really going for a consistent product. I was more of less getting a feel for the roving and a feel for the spindle, neither of which I'd ever handled before up until when I spun this. And now I'm eyeing the ball of remaining roving staring at me silently from the other side of the room!
