[spinning] 12th Planet

I spun 8 oz of Corriedale pencil roving from Crown Mountain Farms:

Spinning

The colorway is "12th Planet". I wanted to keep this spin fast/easy, so I did a single ply. I skeined the yarn and gave it a vigorous wash in hot, soapy water to felt it a bit. It ended up being dk-weight. As usual, I have no idea what I'm going to make with this, but at least progress is being made.

So pretty! I haven't picked up my drop spindle in over a year and really need to do that. I miss it. Do you have trouble keeping the cats away? I think kitty has been the number one reason that I slowed down on my handspun. He also likes to steal handspun hanks to snuggle with.

Very pretty!!
I've always been a little suspicious of one-ply. It seems like it should be just waiting for the chance to separate. I know it won't, because I've knit with it, but still...
