Drop spindle progress

Handspun yarn!

Since I had to wind off a batch of the merino from my drop spindle in order to play around with the Karaoke roving, I thought I'd share. So far, I have about 67 yards of worsted-ish weight yarn, with some definite thick/thin spots. I figure, If Manos can have thick/thin spots, it's not so terrible if I have them too. :) There are a few overspun spots, but not too bad, all things considered.

I still have plenty of roving left, and a friend told me that this stuff would make a really fun shrug or bolero. As long as I end up with enough yarn, that's probably what I'll do with it.
