Slow and steady wins the race

I've been spinning on my drop spindle off and on for a few weeks. Once the singles are done, I'll ply them together on my wheel to create a stronger yarn. I've really enjoyed spinning on this handmade drop spindle, because I get a thinner and more consistent yarn that I do with my country wheel. I absolutely love lace weight yarn, and this has definitely helped me work on my drafting skills.

100% Merino
Naturally dyed with Logwood chips
(the color is slightly more purple in person)

Once I'm finished the yarn I'll be able to report back with how long the skein is and also a name. Although I already have a name in mind. :)
