Double, double, coils and trouble

I spun my first core spun supercoil yarn:
not perfect, but certainly fine. It's Romney wool, dyed in broom sedge last year when I was at John C. Campbell Folk School. It was spun into lightly spun singles Z twist; then wrapped over a core of laceweight commercial yarn I had left over from some knitting, with the core slightly retarded relative to the wrapping yarn and with the wrapping yarn held at angles varying from about 70 to 100 degrees relative to the core.
Close up:
Oh, and yes, Kayla is reading Macbeth in school; Tirtze's on Othello.
