My first efforts with the drop spindle. A felted hat hides the real crunchy stuff while this awaits--gloves or scarf??

The second pic is my little red hen--I dyed the roving, spun it and am knitting it into what I hope will be a sensational vest. All I need to do is master short rows so I can finish the shawl collar I want to see on it. Most of this was spun on a hand spindle and after I took the class with John Pitblado finished on the wheel. I can hardly wait to get one of my own--am in love.The blue and raspberry is still a work in progress. This has been spun totally on a wheel and is the result of my bright idea to combine three colors--handpainting is a much better idea.
