This is my fourth attempt at spinning on the new wheel. It's great to be able to use my own yarn for pictures on Fiber Friday. I hope you are all okay with seeing my hand spun instead of a commercial yarn.
This yarn started out as South African wool top from FatCatKnits. I liked spinning this up. The result is a nice soft feeling yarn that I think you could wear next to your skin. I started out with about 4 ounces of fiber and ended up spinning about 122 yards. Everything is still coming out relatively uneven. I think I just need to slow down for a while. I've actually been spinning very fast because I get excited when I sit \down at the wheel. I think I need to relax more and take my time.
I do think some of what I have spun up will make some nice projects; the hard part will be finding small projects to knit with all these smallish amounts of yarn. I'm thinking hats, mittens, or fingerless gloves would work with what I've spun up to this point. I've been spinning more than knitting since Christmas and I'm going to have to start knitting with my new yarn soon.
