Hand spinning

I've been dabbling in hand spinning on a drop spindle. So far I've only produced two vaguely usable things:

Minty green silk

This is a really small skein, possibly only enough for a brooch.

I can't remember where this roving came from. It's been on my drop spindle for ages, and I only just got around to finishing it.
Don't look to closely, I kept getting my clockwise and anti mixed up when spinning AND plying. It's all over the place. But I think it's knitable

And here's my next project....

Roving from Woolie Bullie via the Phat Fiber Chinese New Year sampler box. But first, I'm going to draw some helpful reminder arrows on my drop spindle....
