First Stitches FO!

So, I mentioned in "The Haul" post that Linda bought roving, despite the fact that she doesn't spin (yet). So, ladies and gents, here is my first Stitches FO, Linda's handspun (part 1 of 3):

Before (true color):

Singles (slightly distorted color):

Plied (true color):

This is a 12 oz skein of yarn, all of it bought from Carolina Homespun. Once ply is "Midnight" one of them is "Garnet" (it's not burgundy, I know), and the third is mystery color (unlabeled).

The really cool thing is that there is a noticeable difference in my spinning since taking Sandi's spinning class. My yarn is not so crazily overspun and overplied, and this hank had maybe 1/8 of a twist in it (as opposed to so much energy that it looked like an anemone before I set it).

I began spinning Linda's Handspun, part 2 immediately after completing part 1. I spun 80 grams (of a total 120) in one night.
