Spinning Yarn

This is my second attempt at hand spinning yarn and then plying it. My first attempt does not even deserve a pic in the Blog. I am learning tons. This is some of my hand dyed roving. It is very easy to work with. All that I am struggling with now is getting the consistency the same. AND how on earth do you make a ton of it? This is about an ounce and a half, but it wouldn't be enough to make anything! I so want a spinning wheel. SOOOOOO bad. I can always ask everyone I know to pitch in for my birthday...only six months away LOL

Hopefully the next handspun posted will be beautiful!

This is really good for beginner handspun :) You only have a few overspun sections. Way better than my first attempts :)
