skunk!!

This is what has become of my spinning for the last few days..I started out with a mega bag of mill ends.. I named it skunk.. I was trying to separate the black and have some darker areas but it didn't really work out like that.. the striping is very faint. This was spun on my louet S17... I like this wheel but I have spun in my ashford traditional for so long I always have to adjust to this wheel when I use it... The spin hasn't been set yet on this skein.. it's basically right off the wheel and somewhere between a dk and sport wieght..This is a 100% wool with a little mohair in it. It's very smooth and soft and the skein is 298 yards.. looks like I'll have quite a bit to make something large!!
