I took the Bosworth Midi I bought at SAFF for spin with the Mojave merino purchased the same day. It was fun to be spindling again and the roving is making a lovely yarn but I'm am paying for it with the neck, shoulder and arm flaring up. This may turn out to be a definite no-no and I'm so not looking forward to getting rid of my spindles and wheel.

The socks are lovely and so is the top! That would be so sad if you couldn't continue spinning. I just got a taste of it, and I want more. But with spindle spinning, my shoulder/arm hurt too. I just have to don't overdo it. It looks great, what you have done so far. Very thin, the roving is a wonderful color. What kind of spinning wheel do you have?
