From Start to Finish

Well, not exactly. I mean I didn't shear the sheep or wash the fleece, 
but I did spin the yarn from a roll of space dyed pencil roving.
I have never tried using pencil roving.
It is the most wool I have spun at one time, four ounces.
Sounds silly I know, but don't forget, I have only been spinning since January
and part of that time I had a broken neck and wrist! 
It is also the thinnest yarn I have ever spun (thanks to the pencil roving).
After spinning the single, I divided it into two balls and plied them.
Then I washed and dried it and here it is ready to make into something.
I wonder what?

did you get the pencil roving at the store in San Antonio or did you order it off the web?
