Spinning Color!

My shipment from Blue Moon Fiber Arts arrived yesterday, and I picked it up after work. It was such a dreary and rainy day yesterday and I couldn't help by start spinning this ---

It's from roving in a Sheep to Shoe kit in the Sherbet colorway. I assure you that this colorway will brighten even the darkest day.

The fiber is 100% superwash merino - which I hadn't spun before - but I really enjoy spinning it. It's very easy to spin.

I was most worried about splitting the roving evenly into 3 vertical strips, but all my worry was for nothing, and everything split easily and evenly on the first try.

I am 2/3rds of the way through the 1st strip of roving, and I'll probably get this portion finished tonight.
