My first yarn - from a drop spindle

My first drop spindle yarn
From my wonderful Secret Pal 8 Yarnnut I received a VERY nice drop spindle and some white roving to learn on [see previous post]. Well it has taken me a while, but I did finish the yarn spining and even plyed it - here it is still on the spindle and a little bit closer""
Since it is not very even I just knit it up in a swatch. It was very nice to knit, soft soft yarn.

I sure had fun working on it, and hope to get brave enough soon to spin the hand dyed roving Yarnnut sent me.
