My new hairdo

This is my first handspun. It's about 15 or 20 yards of 2-ply icelandic wool in a natural dark brown. I'm fairly proud of it. It's a bulky yarn. Not to much so, but it is larger than worsted. It's fairly even in size and twist. From a technical point of view, it's a good start in my humble opinion.

I don't think I'll ever knit with it. However, I do think I could do some more and make an awesome dreadlock wig out of it. I could have a Whoopi Goldberg hairdo. Guinan was always one of my favorite Next Gen characters.

Oh. I see Trek and yarn coming together.
