I mentioned before that I didn't take pictures of my first couple attempts at spinning on a spindle, I still have one of the first attempts and decided to take a pic of it and my latest forays into the spinning world.  I think I have improved, maybe you can tell in the following picture.

The ugly one will not be wasted, it will be plied with the pretty pink one, I've already started knitting with my ugly threads and want to keep the same look for the final few rows. 

I ran out of natural colour roving last night, thankfully my ebay purchase arrived today, not bad seeing as it was ordered on Tuesday night - actually d*mn good.  I want to try dying with wilton's so need to pick some up - I've been banned from spending any more money this week though  Cry, spent over $300 on daughter's glasses.  Got to pick them up tomorrow, but I wonder who needs it most?  Me - dyes or DD the ability to see?  Hard choice.

BUT I know that my husband has been looking at spinning items on ebay, he mentioned a few items tonight. When I mentioned I wanted a treadle sewing machine last year, he bought 2 from ebay for Christmas.

Those look great, and fyi kool-aid (or even better store brand kool-aid) works just as good as wiltons plus you don't have to use vinegar so no vinegar wool stink, and packets cost around 30 cents a pop.

Unable to leave good enough alone!

Thanks Star, but we don't have Kool-aid over here.  I was chuffed to find out about Wiltons, seeing as we usually carry it where I work.
