Spinning the yarn

Here is the orchid yarn starting to fill up the spool. I'm waiting for delivery of some Cheviot fleece from Pennsylvania so that I can spin the white yarn. I've already spun up some of the black.

Call A Doctor...I've got FELTED BALLS

I bought the little ones on the plate and decided I needed to try to make some. The larger three are the ones I came up with.
