Handspun yarn!

Here are some photos of my handspun yarn. It is a 2-ply ~worsted weight yarn that I spun & plied on my new Golding spindle.
I had - of course - learned to spin on a wheel back in my "1970's BTL days", & I still own an Ashford Castle wheel from those days, but I had not tried a hand spindle. I love, love, love it - so relaxing & one gets yarn!!

The second photo is a closeup of same.

Nice yarn! Thank you for the compliment on my cowl. I suppose you don't like scarves?
