Here are my spinning results so far and I'm still loving it! The wool roving is softer than you can imagine and I have spun a 5 1/8 oz. ball of single twist yarn. or (149g) This lovely chocolate color is the natural color of the sheep's wool. (clicking on the picture will enlarge it & you can see the wonderful texture) Well, its been a long evening. First my cello lesson and then string participation group which lasts an hour and a half, so I'm one tired gal. Hope you've had a good day, and will join me in praying for our troops, especially those in the face of danger. Goodnight....

Yes, I agree we must keep our troups covered in prayer(s)! The brown color, being natural, is so lovely and warm. I thought you may have colored it.

...you are right, the texture and color up-close is very warm!

Hmmm, there must be a trick to keeping your hands and fingers soft and limber after hours of cello and spinning. :o)
