Spin Me Round

One of my new, and dear, Garden City friends loaned me this BEAUTIFUL spinning wheel made by her father. I could look at it all day, but I didn't. Well I sort of did because as soon as she brought it over I began to learn to spin yarn!! It took a bit but once I got the hang of it I was hooked! It's so rhythmic and fun! I did two single strand spools and then plied them together. That's what you see in the lower left picture.

Here they are in hank and ball form. Or as one of my Facebook friends says: Donut form!
She's right! They look like maple donuts! My favorite!
Any ideas for what to make with this maple donut yarn? It's a liiiittle rough for a right up against the skin chunky cowl.

Ooooh! This is gorgeous yarn. I'm so impressed. I also find it difficult to figure out what to do with my handspun yarn. Maybe some fingerless mitts? Or a lined hat?
