My first spinning FO!

The Shetland has been washed and dried and is ready to use. I have 3 skeins and I think this is enough for a project.
Here is an overview of the 3 skeins. I think it is roughly between fingering and sport weight.
Close-up showing the grist. That is a US quarter underneath.

The 3 skeins need to be used in sequence as one of the singles gradually increases in value from light to dark. The light is in the right and the dark is on the left in this picture. I have to label them to make sure I use them correctly.
