Hi,

Finally I got a wheel for an early birthday present. It's a Louet S10 and I love it Cheesy Here are my first yarns in order of which I spun them...all spun in a week too...these are just the ones I'm proud of, I have spun many funky/ugly color combs which I wont share lol!

Random wool 2 ply first ever spun on my wheel



Skies, random blue and white roving, plied with thread, so this would be a boucle? I love it I added little coils here and there where I got too distracted and spun really thinly



Colorful, brightly and beatiful dyed cotswood locks, that I carded for the first time, some on my hand cards and some on my friends Drum carder, also plied with thread



My favorite... Paper or Plastic? Recycled wool and recycled grocery bags all spun together here and there and then plied with thread ( I kinda like that now Cheesy Lol!)



And all together they can be used as a floatation device incase of emergency lol! I think it looks like a cool colorful coutour neck warmer Cheesy!



Thanks for looking comments and tips welcome Cheesy This wouldn't have been possible if all of your beautiful yarns and fibers weren't here to inspire me ! And please excuse the bad lighting and pictures lol, it's getting dark around here and my computer was actually wanting to upload tonight so I thought I would jump on the chance loL!
