I'm so excited about it! I got it a few days ago and decided to handpaint it and use clear waterbased polyurethane. I was going for a green gradient but The three colors kind of blended Smiley Anyways, here it is! And my first handspun is the free stuff that came with the wheel and a free sample from Cloudlover!

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.
