i made yarn!
i took my first spindling class saturday (finally!) and here is my first "real" yarn, not including the pathetic excuse for I don't know what I made in the class (I was the dunce of class.... it was bad. REAL bad) or the 2 yards of fiber barf I tried to pass off as a hank from after the class.

i couldn't remember what the sizing requirements were for the forum, so there's a larger versioned mini slideshow here

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

That looks great!
The first "hank of yarn" that I made was not the prettiest thing in the world but I kept it because it is great to see the progress that I have made since then.
