Finished plying my first "crazy yarn" this morning on the new wheel, which arrived this past Thursday. I've never intentionally spun thick yarn or mohair locks before and this is a combination of both, plied with dark purple (of course!) sock yarn. My left hand is a bit sore, which probably means I was holding the fiber too tightly and the yarn is very uneven, but suitable for my outdoor weavings. Plan to make a new banner with this one. 126 yards, more or less. Pretty pleased with my first effort, but hoping the next one will be better.
