Spinning my wheel
I've been more or less neglecting my knitting all week in favor of spinning. Here's the latest.
Yards: 380 (3-ply)
Weight: 90 grams
Alas, I am still a beginner, and this yarn is not everything I wanted it to be. For one thing, I overspun it a bit, so it's a little, um, firmer than I would like it to be. I think I was worried about the fine singles breaking during plying, so I overcompensated with too much twist. The yarn isn't exactly twine, but nor does it have the squishy wooliness I would have preferred. At least it should wear well.
This is my first foray into 3-ply, and all in all, it was a success. Once again, though, I spun one of my singles quite a bit thicker than the other two, which explains why this skein is only 90 grams. The original roving was 4.3 oz (122 grams). I did ply the remains of the other two singles together to come up with 175 yards of heavy-ish laceweight.
The next spinning project is already well in hand. Just look at that evenly wound bobbin. Oh Woolee Winder, how I love thee!
