candycane handspun part 2

For some reason Picasa didn't blog my last few photos. I'm still trying to figure it all out.
Anyhow, it's hard to get a photo of yourself spinning and plying, but here's my yarn, now plied and on my spindle. You can see some of the fiber in the background--isn't it just yummy looking?

Here's a close-up of the plied yarn.

Then I wound it up on my niddy-noddy to make a skein

And here is the almost finished product! I still have to set the twist in the plied yarn. Basically that just means wash it and let it dry, but I think I'll save that for tomorrow.

Beautiful! I just started spinning on a spindle, and am looking forward to completing something.
