a little spinning

Awhile back, I got a big order of roving from Sheep Shed Studio, including the brown and white stuff that gave me so much trouble the first time I tried to spin it and some custom-dyed roving.

Last night I wanted to spin something special, so I pulled out some of the custom-dyed stuff. It is really awesome. I don't know what kind of sheep the wool is from, but it's very soft with a long staple length. It took me a little while to get the hang of it (probably ten minutes or so); since then it's super easy and wonderful to spin.

I got really tired last night and only did a tiny bit; I can't wait to get back to it tonight.
