First bobbin

Well here it is folks, the first bobbin full of yarn form my spinning wheel. It;s lumpy, bumpy, under and in some cases over twisted but it’s all mine. This is Blue Faced Leicester wool which I found relatively easy to spin (not that the results bear me out).

I’m now playing with some Masham which is a longer fibre and has taken me a little time to adjust to. Earlier this morning I had visions of spinning my own wool so I could crochet a blanket but I’m realising that I’m a little way away from that yet. Onwards and upwards.
