The Official Start of Summer Vacation

My first attempt at spinning really sucked:

Then I practiced more and more and now I’m getting better. I can pretty much make it basically the same width and uniform looking if I try, which was my biggest problem. Here’s what I just finished this morning:

I bought 8 oz of White Corridale Wool from my new local yarn shop and Kool-aid dyed half of it Grape and the other half Black Cherry. I’ve only spun up about 4 oz. Of it so far. There’s about 52 yards. I plied it, too. The colors kinda remind me of the Circus.

Next up I think I’m going to work even harder to make it all the same width and spin up some single ply stuff. But first I need more fiber!!
