Looking for texture

I've borrowed a spinning wheel again now that I have destashed a bit and made a space for it to live in. I plan to play and experiment over the next couple of weeks just to see what works :-)

Ooh, very nice! Are you getting used to that spinning wheel, yet? Drafting helps so much in spinning. I had to point that out to another spinner who wanted to make sock yarn.
I love the colors!

this one looks like it belongs into the "it works" category:)) nice mix, I wouldn't have thought this from the base colours! (and yes, learning how to knit might be a good idea, if you produce more of those yarns:))

I love the photos in this post, Guzzisue. The "plus" and "equals" signs make it for me! Beautiful yarns and textures, too.
