Introducing...

.....so I didn't go with any of the names I was thinking of....or any of the suggestions given....although I appreciate them all.....after some bonding time.....it is clear.....she is a 

LINDY!
Meaning: sweet or pretty!

Let me be the first to admit that I'm completely, hopelessly addicted to spinning!  It is so true!! Here are my first two skeins from Lindy!  

5 oz and about 400 yards!  (It looks a lot better than what I was able to do on my spindle!)
This is some of the fiber sent with the wheel that I just grabbed the first night to get going.  I'll have to look again to see what is all in it!  I plied it Sunday and gave it a bath.  Today it was finally dry!

So last night I spun this bobbins full of singles....I told you I'm addicted!  I was surprised that I'm getting faster....this took under 2 hours!
Don't worry, there is so knitting going on too!  My Old Shale Shawl is almost done, but showing unblocked lace is so uninspiring, so you'll have to wait!

Wow. I'm humbled by your quick success. Great job. (I'm too afraid to spin....not sure if I'm afraid of no success or another passion)

Your spinning looks so good! I wish I had a wheel...but really...I'm not that productive as it is :-)
