My next-door neighbor is a master spinner and she let me take a drop spindle home, along with some gorgeous 60% wool 40% mohair roving dyed a pretty blue with some purple and light green.

I spun about 60 yds worth, and here it is! My very first!



My MIL is making a branching out scarf with it (it'll actually look like it when it's blocked), to put on the mantle. I'm pretty proud of it.. Cheesy

(the color is more accurate in the spindle photo)

That looks great! I can't believe your first yarn in so thin and even. It'll look beautiful as that scarf.

I didn't manage to get my first spinning as even as yours. Great!
