More handspun

I've been spinning more than knitting.This is my second and third handspun. The white is Jacob sheep, and I forget what the pink is. Merino superwash? I've ordered more of both.

I just love the feel and look of the pink. Not sure what I'll make with it, maybe a tank to wear over a t-shirt?

Here's my Greensleeves "Anne Boelyn" spindle:

I used it to spin the sampler I won at Retzlaff. What an eye-opener. They all spun differently, some easy, some difficult. I felt like I was spinning much thinner but after plying and washing the yarn is not much thinner than what I did on the heavier spindle.
