Pictures of projects

I'm back with pictures. I was going to wait for a sunny day to take the pictures so I'd have better colour but I decided to go ahead.

This first picture is the roving that I bought from ebay. It's Romney wool and I don't know if it's a symptom of the breed or if there was something I needed to do differently but this is definitely not soft wool and as a matter of fact I'd call it unpleasant to touch. It reminds me of the wool that I experienced as a kid.. not something I want to feel again.

Here is my first spun up stuff (I'm hesitant to call it wool)

Here is my first effort at plying and the first time that I'm actually intrigued by this wool. I really like the way it mixed

And here's a picture of the first effort and my new spindle. I went with handcrafted just because it's so expensive to buy one.

I also took some pictures of the sweater I started knitting for my niece. She loves the colour pink so I kind of just went with that.

Since the colours are being a little weird in that photo here is a close up with truer colours.
