My first spun on my Kromski symphony.  I had some issues, like it breaking while plying and I cant get the tension right, but I am working on it.

2oz bulky weight.  The brown is some unknown wool, and the rainbow part is hand dyed mill end scraps from my other dying projects.

I love the colors - very pretty!  I really badly want to try spinning but I'm kinda scared and there's so many different types of roving/spindles etc. that I don't even know where to start!  I'm very impressed by your efforts!
