I love yarn, so of course I've always wanted to make my own. I bought a drop spindle a few months ago, but got frustrated pretty quickly. I really wanted something faster so I would have the time to spin it AND knit it. I bought a Louet Victoria several weeks ago, and this is what I have:
Confetti

This is approx. 5.5 ounces and spun out of BFL, corriedale and merino from spunkyeclectic's Almost Solid Sampler. It's plied with light pink cotton thread. I love the bright explosion of colors, but wish my plying had been better.


Gothic

This is 8 ounces of corriedale. I'm not sure of the yardage but the weight varies from DK to worsted. It came out much better than I hoped, and the more I look at it, the more I like it. I have 8 more ounces I can spin but I'm not sure if I should do the purple/dark gray, or solid purple and solid gray for contrast.

I am thinking about making a shrug or cardigan for my daughter, but am not sure if the colors are too dark for a 4 year old.

I am officially addicted to spinning.  Tongue
