YAY!!!! My first yarn!
So, its not very long and there's all kinds of bumps and skinny spots in it... and I have no idea what I'm going to use it for... but I figured out how to make a complete piece of yarn. Now I have to have to have to work on my knitting for a bit and then LATER I can make more yarn... :D!

OH! I forgot to mention, this is commercially prepared White Rambouliet roving that I got from Cyndi! Just got it today, thanks Cyndi!!!

Hehe, an by the way, if you spin white wool in a black shirt... it will be VERY obvious.

I had the same problem when I was spinning angora from a rabbit at a local fair. When I left the fair, I had angora all OVER my dark green pants.

I am so glad you are enjoying the roving. Good job with your spinning!

Can't wait to see what you've done with the brown Shetland!!
