First Roving Spin

I got some un-dyed merino roving today and I am so happy with it. I found that if I make it a little thick, it breaks really really easy and that makes me a little frustrated but I keep going with the thought that I will get better at it as time passes.

Mmmm Spinning

I brought a spinning wheel and I must say it's sooo hard for me. I have never even contemplated getting one until now, and I received a bag of raw uncleaned sheep's wool with it. Seeing that is all I have had to play with I spend the better part of a day cleaning the wool getting it ready for spinning. I have a few rovings on the way, so I think I will keep playing until they arrive.

Here is my first attempt at spinning raw cleaned wool...grrrrrr I need so much more practice.
