Spinning for a Sweater

This is a fleece that I bought from Ewe and I farms back in July. She's all clean and fluffy. Shauna is a tri-colored Rhomney sheep. I have blended the colors using a drum carder. I spun about 10 ounces of the weekend. I have approximately 2 pounds after the scouring. I should have plenty for a cabled sweater of some sort. More to come in the next few weeks. I might use this for ravelympics if I have all the spinning done. We will see. I am not rushing this since I have to spin extremely thin in order to make a 3-ply worsted weight.

I've always wanted to learn to spin, but I don't know where to begin. I also worry about cost.
