Spindle Therapy

I've been doing a bit of spinning on my drop spindle lately. It's really addicting and quite mesmerizing. I spun 1/2 of a 3 oz roving that I got from Needles and Ewe of the Anzula Superwash merino...I think the color is called "Garden." 
Not my normal colors...Pink?  Purple?  nah...Not something I'd usually choose, but what the heck.  Break outside the box, right?  So I separated out the roving into two approximately equal lots to be able to create a two ply yarn.  The first half is done, the second half is nearly done but as yet unphotographed.  I'm taking a plying class at The Knit Addiction on Saturday and I'm hoping to have the two halves done so I can become a pro at plying them.  Who knows, maybe there will be a handspun Etsy shop in my future?
