I am super duper excited about this! My boyfriend and I are taking spinning classes at Yarns Unlimited (the LYS in Bloomington). This is my first 4oz skein (spun from hand-dyed romney roving). I will probably be plying it next week when I learn how to.

This is mine:

That is stunning. 

I presume you are learning on a wheel.  I can't wait to do that myself.  The drop spindle is losing its magic.

Mmm.... they look yummy.  I agree with knkurz, though, that it's probably better to leave it a single ply.

I eat all the yummy colors, and beautiful work from both you and him.  and I have to agree with patchworkarmy - definitely a keeper (wish I could get my sweetie to do anything crafty)

I have 2 louets standing in the livingroom, but the bf only touches them when they are in the way (as they always do) or to fix things.
