it's here!

Kindly ignore all the surrounding clutter.....

It's just lovely.

And here's my first wheelspun yarn...all 40 yards of it! ;)

first-wheelspun

It's nothing to write home about, but it's balanced and soooo sft. I chose cormo because I knew it would be easy to draft. Spinning? A bit of a challenge figuring out all of the adjustments, as I expected. Plying? A dream. Of course I have to work out the hand stress issues -- among other things -- but I think I'm really going to like it.
