I've been lurking on Fiber Friday for a long time, admiring everyone's beautiful yarns, and finally have the courage to post my own! I'm pretty new to spinning and I've made some bumpy singles before this, but these are my first plied and first full skeins. All spun on drop spindle.
The first: acid-dyed Romney wool. I hated the roving after I dyed it, but decided to spin it anyway for practice. I like the way it spun up after all, so I call it "serendipity". It's 100 g, I didn't measure it. It varies between DK and bulky weight.
The second: I had no idea that cotton was really really hard to spin, so I bought some pre-dyed at my LYS - it was a nightmare. I couldn't draft it at all. Finally I just split the roving (or whatever you call it - still unsure of the terminology) into thin strips and spun it without drafting at all. I then plied it with gold thread and added some red seed beads in (though you can't see them in the pic). I like the way it finally turned out but NO MORE COTTON. Unweighed and measured, varies from lace weight to super extra bulky! ugggh. "Embers"
The third and most recent: Kool Aid dyed Lincoln wool, 115 yards and 100 g. DK to worsted weight. This one is the most even I've spun yet. The colours came out way brighter than I was expecting!
