Corriedale Surprise

During the Black Sheep Gathering, I enrolled in a class called Popular Wheel Mechanics.
We spun some corriedale, and experimented with different whorls and drive bands and tensions and stuff.
You can see my attempt to make a thick, irregular yarn:

The blue stuff is me experimenting with different colored rovings, to try to make something that looks like trekking sock yarn (only in a color palette that I really like :)

I can't wait to ply this stuff!
