Handspinning yarn...

So a few months ago, when I had some money (I miss that, unemployed sucks, even worse when you can't get unemployment, but that's another discussion), I decided I was going to learn to spin yarn.

 I bought this drop spindle:

And this roving:

I used the spindle to do my handplied yarns, but the roving sat unused until a couple days ago.

 I'm not going to post a tutorial on how to do it, because there are a bazillion other tutorials out there and I watched many of them. But here is the finished product!

Before plying with thread
The finished yarn, 36 yards of wooly goodness!
