Look, my very first handspun (using a drop spindle)!
Isn't it incredibly ugly? Last week Katy was good enough to teach a bunch of us how to spin, and this is what resulted from my first efforts. I showed this ball to someone at WWKIP day last weekend, and their comment was "huh, that must've been a really ugly sheep!" Yeah, the roving is not exactly the most gorgeous thing ever (Jacob sheep, they are spotted!), but I will probably need a lot of practice before I get any good at this.
Next lesson is plying, I'm sure this yarn will then turn into an even bigger horror. =)
My second effort looks ever so slightly better, only because the roving comes in prettier colours.
And because I can't resist pissing the cat off....
She's really getting the hang of this "stay still for the yarn pose" thing. Even though she clearly hates it. =)
