I posted my first spinning project way back and now here is the long overdue second!



I spun this roving, which was gifted to me in a personal swap by Zombie_Queen, and then plied it (with some KnitPicks yarn) shortly after that first project but let it sit this entire time.  I was without a niddy noddy and let it be an excuse not to set the twist.  Well, my birthday is coming up and I decided to buy one along with some more fibers in celebration.  That means I got to work and this project can officially be considered done!  It's still a bit overtwisted in some spots but I'm working on the second roving of the new ones I just got and think I'm finally getting the hang of it.

So hopefully this will be a board I can hang around more often.  Not that I haven't been lurking like crazy but...  =)

Hurray! It looks so good. I'm so glad to have you joining our ranks. Can I squeeze it? Pleeeeease?
