My First Real Yarn

I have been spinning yarn since February and I am just about finished with 'my first real yarn'! I have named it "Woodland" as it is a mix of copper, brown, dark green, deep red and a bright sky blue...the last not a color I would have chosen for my blend but my spinning teacher prevailed and everyone loves the 'poison' she calls the unexpected color. I plan to make a cropped bulky pull-over sweater with a basket-weave design on the front and back with plain arms...but first I have to finish three other sweaters in my queue. The picture shows the plyed yarn, the unspun fiber batt and the spun singles.
