And they're right. It's amazing how much progress a new spinner can make in only three classes. I think I've spent a grand total of about 7 hours spinning now, and I've made pretty big strides.
Here's my second-to-last skein.
And here's my last skein, made by plying two skeins together. Plying is a wonderful thing. It goes a long way toward evening out all the lumps and bumps. Plus, when you ply a color with white, it looks like a candy cane. I have a sort of half-baked idea to make a big Dr Who scarf showing the progression of the yarn's quality. Still thinking about that.
