Another first!

I had decided that this year was the year of learning new things, I generally end up picking up a new craft here and there, but I wanted to actively scratch things off my to-learn list. I'm incredibly comfortable with knitting, and we covered crochet, so what could I learn that could bring the two together?

Spinning, of course! I attempted it here and there, but never really sat down and actually gave it a real try, until this week. I picked up a drop spindle and some roving, and just went for it. So my first ever spun yarn:

It's a tweedy merino, magenta, horribly underspun, overspun and just right. But for the most part it's about a worsted. It's just a mini practice skein of about 30 yards because I was just too excited to finish, I wanted to set the twist immediately.
