Please take a peek, they are a little sad and tiny, but I am getting the hang of it.  Smiley

This one is with some unknown wool roving that came with my spindle kit

This one is with roving from Smokeymountainfibers on Etsy, Blue Violet colorway http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=65227

Let me know what you think........not that good, but not too bad for a newbie, right??  Wink

I am off to spin some more from SMF, in a gorgeous merlot colorway.  Smiley  And I have 5 lbs of roving coming from The Sheep Shed and a sampler from Spunky Eclectic and hopefully buying a wheel soon too.  I love spinning and was instantly hooked.

Those look great!
They both look super soft and squishy.. and i adore the colors in the second one.

I only started spinning with a spindle maybe 2 months ago.. and I'm totally hooked too! Beware of fiber addiction!  Wink

Thank you for the compliment.  They are nothing compared to the other ones posted here, but they are my first and I am proud.  Wink

Fantastic job on your first two skeins.  They are super sqwooshy! 

I cleaned out SmokyMountain's whole shop one time.  Her fibers are very nice and super bouncy.  And so nice to work with!
