i spun. i really SPUN!

i just can't get over it. it's just so pretty. ok, it isn't really actually if compared to other, more colourful, or more skillfully worked yarns. but this baby is MINE! i spun her all by myself and as far as i'm concerned she's just the loveliest thing since sunsets and spring tulips. i made her out of...i'm not sure what i made her out of. i bought a box of wool surprise from this super snazzy online place that gives prices in kilos. craziness. kilos of wooly goodness....NO! for now i must be happy with my one kilo. it's very nice, a mix of 7 or 8 different wools, and it was a fair bit cheaper than other stuff i've seen online. it did not come labeled however, so i don't know for sure which one i spun. i think it was some New Zealand wool. luckily they're not all the same colour, and only 2 are really white.
i have to admit i was a bit intimidated at first, because i know people have had trouble with spindles, and i wasn't sure if my standard issue spindle from the random online wool factory would work well for me or not. but how can you resist a box of wooliness?? i took a much deserved (i can pretend, can't i?) break from thesis writing to give my new toy a whirl. and boy did it whirl! it's just the craziest thing ever. fluff on one end, spindle on the other, and in the middle, yarn is practically just making itself like i'm Rumpelstilskin or something. i couldn't believe my eyes!
so now i've definitely gotta work double time on this darn thesis thingamajiggy and get it done like yesterday cuz baby's got some spinnin to do!
