Spinning Thursday

I have declared today to be Spinning Thursday. Huzzah! Why all the fanfare? It is because I have crossed the threshold and entered the scintillating world of spinning! I spin! I am a spinner!!! Here is my humble first hank o' handspun yarn: a lofty bulky two-ply Corriedale-cross, taken from greasy wool to plied yarn all by myself!!!!! Okay, I had a lot of help from my teacher.

And next week--next Spinning Thursday--we get to try out the wheels! I'm beside myself, can you tell?

No comments, please, about the so-bulky-that-there's-almost-no-twist plies. Hopefully, I'll keep getting better at it.
