Purple Yarn or Number 5

Spinning yarn is a crazy thing.  I start out with a ball of fluff and end up with this.

This is 100% Superwash Merino Wool about 8 oz.  I love this purple; there are beautiful shades of red and blue throughout.

It took a long time for me to make this. It is my fifth yarn ever.  Not sure on the yardage.  I forgot to get an accurate count on my niddy-noddy.  I tried to spin a thinly as I could.  I am starting to get the hang of spinning, but I think I need a few lessons to get better.

I am now working on spinning a much chunkier brown yarn.
