First with miniSpinner

Here's my first yarn with my miniSpinner. It's about 132 yards of aran - bulky weight yak merino. I love it! And it definitely seemed to spin up faster, even though all I did was take away the treadling with the miniSpinner. I don't think it actually made me faster. Just perception I suppose.

My first impressions of the miniSpinner are very positive. I really love it - its small size and smoothness, and how it makes it feel so easy to sit down and spin a little.

Up next - some "Polwarth Lux" from Spirit Trail Fiberworks that I bought at Sheep & Wool years ago. (Can't remember for the life of me what makes it Lux... silk? Cashmere? *shrug*)
