I hadn't spun for quite a while, not since Sleeping Beauty. I'd broken the brake band.
Finally I got a new one though and decided to give it a whirl again.
I used some (I think?) Corriedale wool which I've had in my possession for quite a while.
Spinning was a little rough at first, but soon settled down. Plyed, it evened out very nicely and is overall probably a two-ply aran or heavy worsted weight yarn.
This is before dyeing. I had been planning to make a (shh!) SECRET PROJECT with blue wool but I was fresh out. Rather than buying some I figured I could just dye my own.
Not quite as royal blue as I'd hoped, but it definitely fits the bill.
A clue you say? For the (shh!) SECRET PROJECT?
Well, here you go.
That's all folks!
