OK, Here it is........

My first attempt at spinning. I gave it a name.
It's called "YUK"

Well, I just had to make something with it. I can't stand to waste anything.

This is my second attempt at spinning. Not much better. It's name is "Peas and Carrot Throw-up"

Now, this is a little better. My third attempt. I'm not giving up! No I'm not. Maybe I'll look back on this one day and laugh. Right now I'm a crying!

Don't be so hard on yourself!! I found out (finally!) that when you knit up your "bad" handspun and block it that it looks good!

Plus, your handspun looks great! And! just remember that wool is very forgiving.

That old adage that "It'll all come out in the wash." is kinda true.

Also, the purple yarn looks fantastic! Did you get that roving at SAFF? It looks very similar to some stuff I'm spinning up.

I think it looks great!! I'm telling you, it looks MUCH better than my first handspun from the class at SAFF.

Cindy, IT'S SOOOOO PRETTY & the purple looks so much better than anything I have spun so far!!! I especially like "YUK" though.

Okay I love everything you showed! Love the names too. When you named that one "peas and carrots" it reminded me of Forrest Gump when he said:

"From that day on, we was always together. Jenny and me was like peas and carrots."

Was that not the best movie ever??
