This KAL is just the motivaiton I need to start turning my handspun into something knitted. I just fell into spinning last fall, but I fell hard, so there's a lot of fiber filling up my house! For this I'll be using my Louet S10, which I bought second-hand, and I love:

to spin some "Australian mixed wool" roving I bought from my spinning teacher last year. I have already spun some of it (which I'll post soon) and the rest looks like this:

It's a lovely gray/brown mixture and spins up very soft and springy. I'm looking forward to following everyone's progress--some beautiful fibers on here so far!
