My First Handspun!!!

I'm done! I'm done!  Here's the singles on bobbins.  I bet you can tell which bobbin was my first one.  ;D

And here it is plyed on one bobbin.

Here it is on the niddy noddy.  I really didn't need to show you this pic but I wanted to say 'niddy noddy". hehe

Here it is skeined. 

I've got to set the twist yet & then remeasure to make sure how much I have but as of right now, it's 80 yds.  I'm thinking of a skinny scarf or a cowl. 

One more pic, here's an up-close pic of it.  In some places, it's all red, other place, it's all gold & most of it is red/gold.  I've named it "Brave At Heart" cause it screams Gryffindor to me.  ;)

Awww, thanks! I can't believe there was a spinning wheel at a Goodwill. I've always wanted one if only for a decoration but now I've got a use for it. I absolutely love it. It's given me a rest/break from quilting so I don't go completely insane.

Thanks! It's so addictive. I'm glad I have access to loads of fleece. Hopefully I can hold off on spinning too much until the sheep get sheared this summer. But honestly, I'm not holding my breath. I have 4 rovings & 2 batts I bought plus 2 pounds of fiber that I can dye. Oh, there is a bag I can practice cleaning & combing/carding until the shearing. I'm trying my hardest not to go on etsy & buy anymore. ;) It's just so hard, there's so much pretty fiber out there. I'm thinking of dyeing some of my fiber purple & lime green to make some Starknuts yarn.
