My first-spun and an FO from it
Only because everyone here's so nice, I'm going to be brave and show the very first yarn I spun - and the little mini-bag I knit up from it. Used a drop spindle, and had lots of fun! I think I'll do more, hoping to get better!!!

Oh yeah. I actually tried the white from the kit and messed it up so badly, I threw it away.

WTG on your spinning I think it's wonderful that you are going to have a little purse forever from the very 1st yarn that you spun

I hope!!!

I have read that once you get good, it's VERY hard to make such "specialty yarns" any more!
