Making Yarn?

In my never ending quest for more yarn, I recently dug out the drop spindle that has been in my closet since I ordered it from Spunky Eclectic several months ago. I started with the Bluefaced Leicester roving that came with the spindle, eagerly anticipating the beautiful fingering weight yarn that would surely soon develop and later be turned into socks. Have since learned that it takes a bit of time to develop the skills to spin such yarn. From what I have read and heard, the thick/thin mess that I am getting is pretty normal for a new spinner. Still, it is fun to work on this and to see the roving change into yarn, even if it is novelty yarn.
