Fun With Fiber

Having SO MUCH FUN with spinning!  Thank you, Merike!  I can tell that I understand it better now than I did a few years ago because I see a marked difference between what I'm spinning now and what I spun in 2006 or 2008.

Here I am, getting ready to ply some BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) that I spun last night (with some help from my lovely assistant, Thing One):


And here is the resulting two-ply yarn:


Afterwards, I plied up some of the BFL I spun in 2008.  I'll bet even the non-fiber folks can see the difference:
