Weekend spinning

Hanging out at home this weekend was a perfect time to break out the spinning wheel and some fiber from my stash. I had 50 grams of pencil roving, 100% merino wool, that I bought at City Knitting back in the spring. The fiber was so soft. It was a lot of fun to watch the barber pole effect spin up from the stripes of rose and black in the wool. I spun this as a gift, but it's definitely going to be hard to part with. I think it would make a lovely and soft hat or join up with a solid color for some mittens.
