Spinning wool

Tonight my friend Susan and I got together to spin some wool!  I love this!  It is always so relaxing!  This is a bag of the wool I'm spinning from a sheep from Scotland, CT.  The right picture is the wool after I card it to allign the fibers and clean it up a bit.
This is a picture of Susan spinning the wool.  She's got a roving of alpaca.  She uses her yarn to make the coolest knitted mohawk caps EVER!
This is a side view of my wheel which is an Ashford.  I love it and its the best wheel for a beginner like me!  Now if I could just figure out how to make crocheted mittens.....
