Spinning is addictive

I am finally on the heel flap of my mothers christmas sock. For a while, I thought I was in the black hole of knitting. I just kept knitting and knitting and knitting away and it refused to grow. But I beat it! take that sock!
When I wasn't working on that sock, I was spinning this
Sunny side up


The roving is from knit witch. I forget the name of the colorway but I know it's superwash merino.
I think it's about a dk weight. I loved spinning this up. the color is just so happy looking! P2162010
I also spun up 8 ounces of some roving from Dizzy sheep. I haven't finished it yet (I need to steam the last skein) but look at how nice and even it is!
As I spun more and more on this, my spinning got a lot better. So the first skein I spun, is somewhat thicker and less spun then the other 2. I think when I knit with it (maybe a scarf?) I'll just alternate the skeins so it looks even. But other then that, I adore it.
