Back to the spinning

Right so remember that spinning thing I was trying way back when? Yeah I finally decided to keep the Louet wheel b/c honestly I just seemed to like it better. Plus it’s portable which is always a plus. So anyways - check out what I made:
My First Handspun
That’s the brown/gray wool that my grandma gave me to practice with. It’s actually a part of a fleece that one of her friends gave her as a birthday gift - can you imagine that? Getting a whole fleece for you b-day? That would rock pretty hard. Aaanyways I spun it all and then it sat on the wheel for a month. I finally, just now, got to plying it. I’ll be the first to admit that it sucks a lot in some places but overall?

My First Handspun
It’s totally yarn.

So much so that I can even knit with it!
One Row Handspun Scarf

That would be the one row handspun scarf by the Yarn Harlot that I found thanks to the magic that is Ravelry. Even closeup once knit the yarn looks kindof ok:
