This is the second yarn I've ever spun. I haven't tried spinning at all since that first time over 4 years ago though, so in a way it's the second first time.
Looks a bit twisty, no? Seems like I have a tendency to overtwist. In my attempts to make it as thin as possible, I ended up with some thick and thin spots as well, but I suppose that's what practice is for.
I think, at this point, it would really help me if I could see someone spin in person, so I could figure out exactly how it's supposed to be done. And a nicer drop spindle would definitely be useful. But the yarn came out soft and lovely, and the twisting doesn't really bother me. I think I'll use it to knit wristwarmers, should be nice and warm!
The fiber is super soft merino that mamayaga on ravelry was nice enough to send me (THANK YOU again!)
