My first ball o' yarn, spun on my shiny new Lendrum DT complete. I'm very happy that it has a jumbo head/bobbin, because at first I couldn't get the wheel to work, then I realized it was because it was going too fast for me, so I switched to the jumbo and it all came together. I made this ball last Thursday, and haven't spun anything since then, though I think I might do some spinning tomorrow. Smiley Wheeeeeeee!

Of course, now I have to figure out how to spin thin and how to ply. I'm very afraid of plying...

Your yarn is beautiful. I love the color.  I just recently got my wheel, a Louet S15, but my yarn attempts so far have been very thin and overspun in places.  I'm still learning to fiddle with the tension. Smiley

Yeah, it's hard to get the hang of the tension. I had to fiddle around a lot.
