Thanks!  I'm sure it's pretty obvious that it's my first yarn, but there's some satisfaction in that, anyway. Cheesy

I think it's very well done. My first yarn didn't look like that at all.

Thanks!  I'm addicted already.  I've been spinning random bits of roving and other stuff all day.  I even pulled out the bags of dog fur I've been saving from my shepherd mix's winter undercoat and spun some of it, even though it hasn't yet been washed or carded or anything, it's just bits of fluff.  But actually, once I spun and plied it with some pink wool thread I have, it looks really pretty, even though it's only about 3 yards.

you know you've become desperate when you begin to look at dryer lint with a twinkle in your eye and you wonder if any of you tylenol has cotton in it Cheesy

I've been spinning random bits of roving and other stuff all day. 

I just got my drop spindle this morning and 3oz of roving to practice with.  The roving was pretty raw but I was literally spinning on and off for the entire afternoon under my desk at work!  I have about 3 skeins between 5 and 11 yards each in a couple of different colors.  I'm almost out of the roving I bought with the spindle already so had to rush online and order more straight away!  I'm sad I don't have a dog or rabbit to harvest fiber from.   Wink

I hope to have some pics to post for next week's Fiber Friday!
