Spinning Away - Opus I

I am still so excited that I can hardly contain mysef. I spun and spun and then all of a sudden...I could do it. It's coming out nice and even, I can control the flow, my bobbin is happy. The top one is the second bobbin, much more even than the bottom. I had issues with starting and stopping and the flyer going backwards on that one but it's ok. All in good time, my dear, all in good time...
Here's Opus I. It's not as ratty as that picture, that's just because I didn't tie it as nicely as I could have. It's about 112 yards and I still have some yarn on bobbin 2 that I can ply onto itself for another 20 or 30 yards. I am tickled pink. I mean..yellow. I mean, full of GLEE!Here it is upclose. Nice? I then gave it a bath and hung it to dry with a little weight to set the twist.

Ok, ok, let's take one more look at the bobbin, nice and close. <glowing like a new mommy>

Must see if my BFF is up in VT today and feels like stopping at Webs on her way home to select some more roving for me. I'm going through withdrawal now.

Gotta go and check on my yarn! Happy knitting and happy spinning.

Is that the Kangaroo Dyer roving? It's so pretty!!!

I'll see what other roving sources are along the way on my weekend travels and let you know...
