Every year when I teach my Beginning 3-D class to spin their own yarn,
there are always bits and pieces of roving that fall to the floor,
or that the kids mess up on and give back to me.
So I collect these little bits and at the end of the spinning unit...

I drum card them into a big batt of fibery goodness.

Then I spin it up on my spinning wheel.
The ball above was spun and plied on itself,
but below I wanted to try to ply it up with another fiber,
so I chose a nubby speckled cotton.

Here is the skein off the bobbin in all it's glory...
ready to be knit, 
woven or crocheted into something fun.
