First Yarn and a Revelation

I have wrapped my first yarn into a ball. I had a little green roving that I spun first, followed by some NZ Jacob. I think I'm getting the hang of it, but I seem to be stuck on "chunky". I have to work on getting "thinner". Guess my waistline isn't the only thing needing slimming!

My first "baby" ball. It is my green roving over my NZ Jacob. Don't feel it's too bad for my first. Does this mean I'm no longer a "virgin"?

But I have had a knitting revelation. It only took me four plus decades to realize that you don't have to actually finish a book when you pick it up if you don't like it. You can actually stop reading, close the book and the book police don't come and get you. I have had the same revelation about knitting. If I don't enjoy something or like it, I can actually stop knitting it and frog it and use the yarn for something else. Goodbye 1/2 Spiral Busters Sock! I was having to tink you anyway and I decided I would much rather use that yarn with some other that I have and make a striped, sleeveless top for summer since I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. It's so soft and I think it will make a fun top. So there! And I don't have to do the second sock that I have out there to do either! I have come, made a sock, and am leaving the joy of sock knitting to least for a while.
