I'm hoping to spin enough for a small shawl or even a pair of mittens.

I explain all about it in the blog, along with other photos of this and more roving.

I love roving.

Not as much a yarn...yet...but it's a close second.

I'd love to see what everyone else is working on!

Do you mind posting the information here too? I hate having to go to people's blogs because sometimes I have so many tabs open that by the time I get to the blog I've forgotten why I wanted to be there in the first place. Plus, in the future, especially with no direct link to your blog post's permanent link, it would be hard for someone to go back and find that info.

Love the color!  Are you gonna ply this?  I have some thicker pink on my bobbin and I am in a debate as to ply it or not...

Madelinetosh, it's a fricke wheel and bobbin. They are huge compared to others I've seen.

Adore one, plying? Umm, not there yet. lol. Newby spinner=no plying-yet. I had dreams of plying it with a cream color. But since I don't have cream roving, who knows what I'm going to do with it.

The Bon, I had just finished writing everything out on the blog, it seemed like it would be a pain for me to rewrite it here. I have to switch all the photos over to flickr and copy and paste the url, then the post. Plus, it was a big blog post, and I was concerned the people without cable/dsl wouldn't read the large post with additional photos here. Thanks for making me think about this though. I'll make it a consideration next time. BTW, it's 70% wool and 30 acryllic. Not so easy to spin as some of the earlier wool I tried.

Misshawklet, I wasn't sure if this would be considered a competed project, that's why I posted it here. I didn't even go on to that board. I will start to, though.

Thanks everyone for the compliments and comments.

That's really all I was looking for. Basic info to make the picture more understandable. Thanks! And posting a permanent link to the blog entry would be a quick and easy solution for people to get the info from your blog a year or two down the road when you have several hundred more entries between this one and your most recent. Make sense?
