I just got my wheel a few hours ago and I am slowly getting the hang of it.  Here is my first overtwisted, not even, unset single.  It is a gorgeous color (Marigold Wool Blend from Spunky Eclectic) and I love it.  LOL!  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for all the help and support already, you all are a font of information!

I like the colour very much! And it looks like a pretty yarn too! Aren't wheels addictive? Smiley

Thanks hon, yes they are addictive.  While watching my spinning video I did this single too, Hosta colorway in Corriedale from SE too.  Get a little more even and not as overspun, still some pretty thin spots tho.   Undecided  I think I am going to try to ply this one with some thread, we shall see.



This will be my last post for today, gotta save up for Fiber Friday.  Wink

oooh both of those colors are beautiful!  that gold is gorgeous....i think once you set it, it will be beautiful.  what color were you thinking of plying the green with?  yellow would be neat!  or even a pink of some kind Smiley

isn't it fun?

They look great - not overspun at all!  Once you set them they'll seem much less "twisty" and behave a whole lot better Wink

The colors remind me of a creamscicle.
