ASBA Entry #1 English Leicester - steps two & three

I've spent most nights this week combing the English Leicester fleece, it's so silvery and lovely.

Tonight I started spinning it; this is about 50 grams so far (at a guess). It is quite hairy and coarse when spun, but nice to work with. It's my first attempt spinning from loose fleece - an interesting experience and very different from rovings/tops.
