Gorgeous yarns and batts.  I had my drum carder out recently and made this:

 

Which then became this:



Otherwise, I haven't been up to much lately. Not feeling very inspired for some reason.

jexxican and inle-rah, those are gorgeous batts and yarns! I want to pet them all... Cheesy

I have some things to share. I'm learning how to spin (for the 2nd time), and here are my first attempts! I have a small top whorl drop spindle.

Very first skein, roving that came with the spindle. It's .5 oz, and about 18 yards.



Then I bought some pink/purple roving called "Hyacinth" and spun that up. 4 oz total, 6 skeins that range from 10-18 yards.

Ooh, Inle-rah, that batt is amazing! And the yarn you spun from it rocks, too. Stats?

Indigo_roses, yay! A new spinner! It is lovely. I'm thinking either your spindle is really little or your yarn is really thick. Really loving the Hyacinth. Wow, pretty!

My new friend called to tell me that she spun for about 5 hours yesterday at least with the Learn to Spin kit I gave her! Hooray new addicts!
