Cranberry Wool Spun into Gorgeous Yarn

Next to navy blue, cranberry might just be my next favorite color. I found this gorgeous shade of cranberry wool at the local yarn store and knew that it was going to be beautiful once spun. Since I have let my friends and family know about my newest hobby of spinning yarn, I have found that there are many questions. Mainly, if I am not using a spinning wheel, how else could I spin yarn? So, for any of you who might be curious, I included the following in this post's photo: roving wool, Single Ply yarn on a Drop Spindle (Bottom Whorl), and a Ball of 2-Ply yarn.

I am enjoying this new craft and my little guy loves helping spin the spindle. It just looks like a big top to him :)
