Spinning-Getting there

 This beautiful Merino Top is from Gnome Acres.  I got it at the Green with Indie Craft Show.  The Bug picked it out and thought it would be fun to spin it up thick and thin for a hat.  This was before I had the wheel. 
This being my second go at spinning I was spinning thick and thin whether I wanted to or not.  Thus a perfect time to spin up this yarn.  Also the nice smoother Merino was a joy to use; so soft so easy to draft. It really left me work letting my feet and hands work together instead of fighting the fiber like I was with that BFL fiasco.  
It's more or less Bulk and 68yds.  It hangs straight and is SO soft.  Perfect for a cozy hat for the little Bug.
