My New Dropspindle and My First Spun Single!!

This is my new dropspindle!! It just came in the mail yesterday from anniemay123 who is a great seller on ebay and who I'd recommend to anyone looking into drop spinning. She and her husband make and hand paint the spindles. In the kit I purchased, I recieved the bottom whorl drop spindle, 2oz. of "Multi-Purple" wool roving from Ashland Bay Trading Co., 2 pamphlets from Interweave Press on drop spinning, and two fiber samples (a "Lavender" Superwash Merino top and a natural "Coffee" colored combed Alpaca, both of which are amazingly lovely).

On the spindle right now is my very first single! I am very excited and I can't wait to spin the rest of the fiber and ply them!!
