So...I have been dying to learn to spin (and some people are giving me two entire fleeces so I had to learn how).  I finally went out and got a drop spindle.  I know...I know...slower than a wheel, but I'm getting there.  So it came with a tiny bag of roving that I spun up.  I think I did a pretty decent job considering it's my first time (I feel like Madonna  Wink)  I have more at home to practice on and I am going to order up some mill ends (although...I am getting those two fleeces...)  So...hope you like...and aren't too cruel to the new spinner.

So here it is laying on my front steps...


And here is a closeup for detail...


Well, I hope you enjoyed...the next stuff will be dyed up because the rest of my roving is white...  Smiley

That looks like the roving I got with my spindle! Did you get a babe?

By the way, very pretty. Smiley

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

I think your yarn is fabulous! I wish mine was that consistent. Good job, keep it up, it's lovely.
