My 1st handspun.

My 1st proper bit of spinning on Lewis - my wheel. It's Merino and it's soft and yummy.
I Navajo/Navaho (?sp) plied it. It was interesting to note that the quality of my spinning changed as I progressed back through the bobbin. The early stuff was much more lumpy or over spun. I don't think it is too bad for a 1st effort and now am hooked. I have Angela's Corriedale Wizz (see a previous post) waiting in the wings and am itchy to try it. Just need to wait for my knee to heal a bit more and there will be no stopping me!

Purty yarn! Love the color too. I am terrified of spiders, btw, but your photos are always fun to look at!
