Wow! Everyone's stuff is so fantastic! I feel like such a noob!
So even though I have posted my newest yarn creation already, I thought I would post here the roving that I bought when I was at a festival here in MN. I knew I was getting a wheel, and even though this roving is gorgeous so I want to save it, I bought it anyway!
The white is roving I am using for learning, it is really nice, but not too expensive. I tried to learn on some yuckier stuff, but it was too hard. I guess my wheel is particular!
The next 2 are ones that I got for about $7 for 4 oz. they feel like cashmere. They had so many wonderful colors, it was hard to pick. Luckily I kept their card so I can buy more!
The last pic is of 2 different rovings, one greenish, the other bluish. When I saw them I immediately thought I would spin and ply them together. They said a lot of people had been saying that. about 3 oz a piece at $5. Kept their card too.
This weekend I will probably play with the last 2 rovings. I am kool aid dying as we speak with the white roving spun into a single. I have this nifty antique yarn winder, which I thought was like a swift, but it turns out it is fantastic for pulling yarn off the bobbin and winding. I just let it set all stretched out on the winder for about a day, and it keeps that twist nicely.
Here is a pic of the yarn on the winder:
