First Home Spun Project.

I've done lots of spinning since I treated myself to a spinning wheel and have approximately 3,117yds of plyed yarn ready to use. I've spun wool from Jacob, Shetland, Norwegian, Merino and Blue Faced Leicester  sheep. I've only used a small amount of it though and this is my first home spun project.
