Yarn 1.0, straight off the drop spindle. Because you can't knit all the time.

It is not very good yarn. It's uneven and unlovely. But it's also the first try. The second try, currently on the spindle, is a little less lumpy. I will ply them together at some point and make a delightfully ugly yarn, at which point I will have learned to spin and ply and I will have a ball of undyed bluefaced leicester wool of indeterminate yardage to be transformed into something.

And then I can get serious with the lovely fiber I got from Blarney Yarns and make something pretty.
