spinning & finished yarn


I don't think I had posted about getting my new spinning wheel before..
I think I am getting the hang of it. still LOTS to learn.. I won't bore you with the details :-)
I had used my drop spindle for some blueish, green wool to spin the singles.
then used my wheel to ply it.. :-) after that wrpped it round the back of a chair . tied it in about 5 spots & then washed it.
it finished drying today & came out pretty bouncy.. which is fine.. I can't say exactly what size the yarn is just yet.. but currently it seems to be a cross between a dk & bulky.. :)

Here is a bit of a blurry pic to give you some idea.

have a great day !
