First Spinning

 A sweet friend from Ravelry sent me some roving in the mail a few days ago. I had been reading some information online and viewing videos over the past week. This evening I took a deep breath, dusted the spinning wheel, and got started.

This looks kind of icky all pulled apart, but it was in this lovely braid before I did so. I forgot to take a picture before I started.

 I am totally inconsistent with how much fiber I pull out every time. Practice is the only cure.

 Boy, if it all looked like this bit in my hand...

 The first yarn I actually got to feed onto the bobbin! 
It took me 20-30 minutes just to troubleshoot that problem.

 The spinning wheel:

 How the bobbin looked after a little more work. Totally inconsistent. Sigh.

 And, the view before I stopped for the night.

I'll keep working on it!
