Back to the Wheel

Ok.....so I hadn't spun in a long time, but since I had picked up some fibre at the festival and had a spinning class, I was anxious to get back to the wheel...so to speak.  
This is one of the lovely fibres I picked up...a black merino roving loaded with colored specks of silk noil.  I bought 12 ounces thinking I would spin it fingering weight for a wide scarf or wrap.  Well, I got sick of spinning it.  That has never happened to me before.  
I have spun very large quantities before, but for some reason, this time....I'd had enough.  It is beautiful and soft..and over 900 yards and I'm sure it will be gorgeous, but.......thank goodness the spinning is done.
