Spinning Wheel keeps on turning!

Check out the yummy yarn I've been spinnng on my Fidelis! The speckled white is some roving sent by Jan of , who makes the wheel. The pink,purple,grey is some handdyed merino I dyed. The brown is some yummy Llama I got from my friend Patrica's friend. I'm having fun spinning all this fiber!

Here's two spools of my trusty BFL. Man, a lb of fiber sure goes a long way! I still have half of it left, and have spun 500 yards of it. I still love it! BFL is absolutely my favorite stuff! It's really easy to spin.
The yarn on the left is some purchased fingering wt yarn I put for comparison. The yarn on the right is my handspun BFL. Look, fingering weight! Kewl, huh? It was a proud moment! I'm using this for a hat.
Here is the same BFK spun fingering weight! I was told by a person that I wouldn't be able to do this on this wheel...Wrong! It wasn't that hard either! I love my Fidelis Wheel! I have some alpaca/tussah silk coming in and I can't wait to give that a try!
