My very first yarns - Feb 2000

I'm pretty sure this skein was spindle spun back when I first began trying to learn to spin. Didn't need no stinkin' lessons, man, so I got a book. Beginning spinners - look and take heart. ALL of us started out spinning stuff that scarcely deserved to be called yarn.

And here is some **wonderful** border leicester (giggle). I would buy a fleece and spin 2 or 3 locks and then let it ply back on itself. I still do this, but my samples look a LOT better now.

It's late, I'm tired and I think I'll go to bed now. I've got a lot more photos to put up, so stay tuned. :)
