I'm going to come in with a bang today since I've been spinning like crazy since last weekend.
First.. I turned this:
It is some of my best spinning to date - approximately 4 ounces of a braid of blended roving I bought at MDS&W, stripped into tiny skinny strips that I sorted by colour, and then spun from the yellows through the reddish/orangy bits.. to the darks, ending in blues.
