Hand spun yarn

This is about two ounces, or seventy grams, of knitted correidale wool knitting at a sport/worsted weight. It took about six hours total to spin the singles and then ply them together.

I picked up some brown and scarlet RIT dye, which I used to give it some color (I hardly ever wear white). I'm not sure what I'm going to knit out of this, but it's very exciting.

Overally, I'm pretty impressed for my first go at spinning, and I'm already super addicted. I spent all day dying more roving to give it another go.
