Last Post for my Twisted Friends

This hand-spun yarn has now gone through all the necessary stages before knitting with it. It was spun on my drop-spindle of Merino wool roving and is 18 yards long. It's pictured drying on my Niddy Noddy, then after being wound into a center-pull yarn ball with a vintage wooden spindle. I bought the spindle years ago just because I liked it. I never thought I'd actually use it!
