My First Handspun!

Check it out!

My first ever hand spun yarn.

I had some mohair fiber hiding out in my stash so I played with that and this is what I got. I have never spun before or had a lesson but I had a pretty good idea how it is done from blogs and having seen people spinning in person. I made a thick single and Navajo plyed it. The yarn is bulky and a little uneven and I think I might have enough for some fingerless mitts or stripes on a hat!

You know, for a first time spinner, that's a great result...and you even Navajo-plied on a spindle! Chapeau! I know some advanced spindlers who are still afraid of Navajo-plying on the spindle. ;-)
