Under the sea

What have I been up to all week? Not a lot except spinning with a tiny bit of knitting but nothing to show off yet.

This is the first completed spin that just came off the niddy noddy this morning. It was some roving a friend asked me to spin up and it was glorious. Lovely long staple that just slid out of my hands. I wasn't so sure at first when I was predrafting but as soon as the spinning started it was wonderful.

Check out the pictures:
Now I don't have WPI details as I forgot to do this before I made the skein all pretty. There is however 100gms of what I would say is light-normal fingering. It is a little uneven as I still have an awful lot to learn about spinning but it does give it character.

What do you think Kel? yes and I know I'm supposed to be getting the kids to school but they'll keep ;)

Keep smiling :-)
