My first skein of yarn spun on my Ashford Joy! 93 yards of soft fluffy goodness!Yeah! It's one ply soy silk in purple green and blue and one ply merino that I dyed in shades of purple (see the post below). It looks like brains in this picture: And here it's a little neater:
Devin has requested a cabledhat out of this. I think I can do that :-) I have some more fiber in the crock pot right now that I'll be spinning into yarn for my secret pal. One ply will be alpaca and the other merino. Hopefully I'll spin it a bit more evenly than this! For my first skein on the wheel I don't think it's too bad though. And the merino- which I spun second- was WAY mpore even than the soy silk, so I take that as a sign that I'm improving.
