Wild and wooly spinning
Mwa-ha-ha. Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha. Now I know why Dr. Frankenstein laughed like that in his lab. Spinning yarn brings energy to the wool and creates something new. Spinning is serious fun.
This is my first hand spun and my first attempt at plying. Since I had less than a bobbin, I decided to try Andean plying. I used the book "Spin to Knit" as my reference.
Wild and wooly. Hee haw. My perfectionist side has been won over and I am thoroughly enjoying my first hand spun yarn and all of its idiosyncrasies - its resistance to being smooth, even-looking yarn (although that is still my goal).
I haven't bought a niddy-noddy yet, so I wound it off the bobbin around my hand and elbow.
It had a lovely bath and is now hanging. I thought I had put too much twist in it while plying, but now that it is hanging it looks like I didn't put enough in.
