Handspun Scarf

I don't know if I've ever posted about this. If i have, forgive me! :)
Last year for my birthday, I was given an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel!
It's absolutely amazing and I love it!

I believe this is the only handspun article I've taken pictures of.
When I was given the wheel, I promised my grandpa that I'd make him a scarf from the first yarn I spun.
It was uneven and lumpy, with a few knots in places, but it was remarkably soft!
The finished scarf is wobbly from yarn thickness issues, but I think it has a lovely rustic feel.

I hope to find time to spin soon...
