Look what I did!

Having been bitten by the spinning bug (no not some exotic Texas beetle - the driving desire to create handspun yarn, LOL!) I ordered a spindle (OK, 3 different ones) online. I started yesterday spinning about 8 ounces of my Lady of the Lake colorway on superwash merino top into 2 skeins of 4 ounce single plys. Then today I finished them up and plied them together into an 8 ounce 2 ply skein. This is my first attempt, and I certainly learned A LOT from beginning to end :) But I am very happy with the end product as a first attempt - I was afraid it would be some hideous tangled mess by the time I got through, LOLOL! But boy.... does my back hurt!
