Spinning!

Last year (almost exactly a year ago), I made one of the most expensive craft purchases in my crafting life. I bought a Schacht Ladybug spinning wheel.

After I first put it together, gotta love that yellow lighting...
Since then, I have been going crazy. A whole new world opened to me (read: I could buy so many more things) and I quickly bought as much roving as I could from Stitches West, VKL, and occasionally online.

The last thing I spun was a light fingering 3 ply yarn out of superwash Merino I bought at last year's Stitches West. It was so soft and squishy. I don't have a project for it in mind yet, but I'm always searching Ravelry.

8oz of Crown Mountain Farms superwash Merino from Purlescence Yarns bought Stitches West 2012.

The leftovers spun into a 2-ply
I'll be posting some of the other things I've spun and the projects I make out of them (yay!).
