Spinning

I am really enjoying spinning on my Barry, Majacraft Little Gem wheel.   I am really please with the thickness (or some would say the thinness) and the consistency of my yarn.
Our spinning and weaving group meet once a month, and I really enjoy attending and meeting like minded people.  The local council had a "hertitage week", and invited us to set up a display and "learn how to" in the council offices one day.  So a few of us took our wheels and fibre and set up a display of our work.  We had a few interested ladies wanting to have a turn.  It wasn't a big turn out, but the bonus was that I got to spin more of this yellow fibre and finish the 100grams later that week. 
You can see my Tarra Ishbel shawl (browns), and my Boneyard shawl (green) in this photo below.
