Yes my friends, I am now officially a spinster. (and I'm loving every minute of it!) Santa Claus brought me a learn to spin kit from KnitPicks with a convertible Turkish drop spindle and 100 grams of Peruvian wool roving. It took a while to figure out what I was doing, and I made lots of noob errors, but the yarn I produced makes me so happy.
It's definitely not a consistent weight throughout, but thick and thin art yarn is totally in vogue nowadays. (I think.) I predrafted the roving for the singles and then plied it with a lace-weight wool/mohair blend in green. I'm calling it "snowy pastures". There are about 85 yards and I haven't decided what to knit with it yet. Have another look with fingers for scale.
