Detail of 1st skein of handspun

I received the new plastic drive band for my spinning wheel this week and spent this afternoon mounting and fine-tuning the size to my wheel. Then I finished the second bobbin of singles and plied the two together to get this yarn. I love it! I can't wait to start knitting with it now. The skein is approximately 120 yards of two-ply yarn to knit one sock with.

My Winter Sweater is coming along nicely. I have both fronts, the back and half of one sleeve finished. My goal is to have it completed so that I can wear it on Thanksgiving day.
