more yarn to show

We have more plied yarn:

yarn100807 005

There are about 34 yards (22 grams) of the multi-colored yarn and about 43 yards (36 grams) of the almost white.

The multi-colored is from this roving from my dye test:

And is shown on the second bobbin:

The almost white is a plying together of the first bobbin above (corriedale) and the third bobbin (targhee).

I'm a novice spinner, but I would say that the yarn is variably spun with overspun and underspun sections, and perhaps (no, probably) is overplied. I do need to figure out how much twist is right and how much ply twist makes it balanced. But it's "yarn" and the knitter in me wants to knit it. I think it wants to be bubby from knitty [link].

You're a spinning machine! I like the pink! I think either one would be a very cute Bubby!

My wheel is from Woodland Woolworks. Excellent customer service, quick shipping, very nice fiber freebies included with my purchase. Here's a link though I'm not sure if it will be clickable in the comments:
If it's not clickable, you can use copy/paste.
