Hard and Software

This is a fun project and right on time for me.
I had a kid mohair fleece sitting around waiting for it to talk to me. Since it did not say a word, one day I blended it with alpaca and wool. Off to Spinderella's we went and she carded it into this beautiful roving:

For quite sometime I have been having problems not being able to spin thicker weight yarns. So I thought I would give it a try on the Roberta. I have to concentrate and try really hard but it is coming out about DK weight. I am not sure what it will be when I finish spinning. I might dye it. Altogether it is 3.5 lbs so maybe an Aran jacket or something like that.
