More spinning

Ok, well, I have been on more of a knitting kit then a spinning kick this last week, but I still have some things to show off to my ones of readers.

First, here is some bulky yarn I spun up with roving I got from Spinning Sisters:
I have about 150 yards there. Likely that yarn will turn into a hat, much like the first skein I spun up:
The Specs:

The Pattern: Robin's Egg Blue Hat
The Yarn: My handspun, bulky weight, about 100 yards
The Needles: US Size 10
The Time to Knit: 2 days
The Verdict: I can't believe I made a hat out of yarn I spun myself. I am very proud of this hat.

Finally, here is the first bobbin of some yarn I have been spinning with some Fat Cat Knits roving:

I am trying very very hard to take my time with these singles, and get a much thinner and more consistent yarn this time. Thus, it is taking me much much longer to spin this up. But, I think I am going to be thrilled with the results!

That's all for this spinning post. Coming up soon: Clapotis, Noro Striped Scarf, and possibly a sweater. :)

Happy knitting.
