Spinning has begun

Here it all is! I got all the clean, carded ryeland fleece out from under the stairs in its pillowcases. The spinning wheel is oiled and ready and moved into the living room. This week I have begun to spin the yarn needed for the new jacket: three ply of the light grey on the spinning wheel; and two ply of the brown on the drop spindle. I'll try to keep track of the hours and skeins. I have no idea how long it will take me to spin a whole fleece!
