I got a spindle at this year's MS&W festival and about 16 ozs of fiber.  I started working on and it and was lucky enough find a LYS that sells spinning supplies too because both of the rovings I had bought at S&W were green, and I needed some change.  Below are the efforts I am most pleased with.  The weights range from fingering to worsted.

Those look great! I really like the first one. It's almost shimmery.

Beautiful yarn!  I can't wait to see more of your spinning efforts.

The one on the far right is beautiful! I love watery colours, especially with those temperatures outside.

Thanks everyone!

The one on the far right is a 50/50 merino mohair in the "Lillypond" colorway I got from Tintagel Farms at sheep and wool.

Those colours together remind me of peacocks. Smiley
