What materials did you use? I practiced with some hand carded wool from my sheep, from last year. This was a batch I overwashed, as it was my first time washing wool. I also practiced with some samples I received with a spindle. Those were in roving, and so I got to practice with rolags vs roving. My first attempts are very thick, lumpy and inconsistent. But I like that for scarves. I will keep practicing.

A lovely homespun look - and I agree with Dru - a perfect setting to showcase the yarn! :)
