81:365 What's on the Wheel

I've been working with my new Victoria wheel. It has a much different feel than either of my other wheels - mostly that it's very light and I'm not comfortable with the tension on it yet. This fiber is 100% Merino top. Lovely to spin and gorgeously dyed, but I'm definitely getting a thicker singles (that's a technical term, not an errant plural :-)) than I might have wanted.

This will likely be Aran to bulky weight once I ply it and finish it. It's beautiful fiber, though, and I'm learning alot about my new wheel.
