my limited experience of spinning has been with a drop spindle for thelast couple of month or so.The wheel is opening up new possibilies for me, this was my first attempt at 'art yarn' on the wheel and was great fun to do.

looks pretty "arty" already! I only have a problem with small samples like that, because I rarely have good ideas for what to do with them. there's only so much space to hang up skeins for "admiration only":))

I love the colors you blended so nice. The spinning is not bad at all ! I think it is great fun to make more yarn and knit something of it :)
