Spinning Progress

 Here we see a full four ounces of two-ply Romney/Alpaca blend, spun by me.  Neat, huh?

And here it is after a little skeining and washing.  Left is with a flash, and right is without.
And this is the next project, laid out to show the color repeat, again with and without flash.

And divided into four strips, two wound green first, and two wound magenta first.

I'm excited to start this project, since it's where I should have started in the first place.  This is Blue-Faced Leicester, which is a better starter fiber than anything I've spun before.  I look forward to seeing if it comes easily after all the other spinning I've done, or if there are still gaps and skills I need to practice.
