Well, I learned how to spin on a drop spindle. Here are two small skeins that I finished today.
Here's pictures of them before they were soaked and set...
Here is a picture of the finished "skeins". Look nice?
The blue/cream one is 8 yards and is two different fibers plied together - the blue is silk, wool, & mohair, and the cream of this skein is wool/silk. Both of these fibers I received in a drop spindle class that I took last weekend in Madison from the Madison Knitters Guild. This is close to a worsted weight I think.
The all white skein (off-white?) is 25ish yards and is a corriedale fiber (wool) that I purchased at Bahr Creek Llama & fiber shop in Cedar Grove, WI. It turned out a bit lumpier and more "homespun" that I wanted, but, hey .. it's my first skeins! Definitely a heavy worsted or chunky weight yarn.
Here is a closeup.
