So, I stole some money from the Stitches piggy bank and bought 2 lbs Romney x roving and a Louet drop spindle from Hello Yarn (Adrian is very nice, by the way!). Great deal (the spidle was 12.00!). Adrian sent a tiny sampler of her gorgeous handdyed roving for practicing on the spindle...
My first attempt on Twisty Lou the spindle. I Navajo plied and it was actually much easier to do on the spindle than on the wheel, I think.
This is my second attempt (using the Romney x) that I made into a tiny swatch to check needle sizes (against, Navajo plied and I think US 8 is the right size):
