My first handspun.

Almost 2 weeks ago, I decided to give spinning another try. Although I had taken one class, several years ago, I really hadn’t enjoyed spinning very much. But I decided to give my spindle one more try. I spent about a week spinning roughly 4oz of fiber, letting it rest on makeshift bobbins, and then plying it together on my spindle. And although the first skein is a little unrefined, I’m insanely proud of it. It LOOKS like yarn!

And a little collage I put together of the project from start to finish:
