I did 2 hours this morning spinning the first of a pair of gorgeous 90/10 merino/nylon batts from Colourful Designs -
And I finally got a pic of the BFL/silk from day 4 -
I'm having such fun :0D
I didn't get a chance to spin during the day as I was out with the 2 littlies so 6:15 saw me standing at the side of the road with Daphne the Ashford Traddy waiting on the bus. Yep, you read right - the bus. Damn near caused a few accidents thanks to passing drivers rubbernecking - you'd think they'd never seen someone carrying a spinning wheel before. I headed off to knitting group, spun for the full 2 hours & finished the second merino/nylon batt so shall be plying tomorrow :0)
I haz yarn barf!
I always spin to ply but long to spin a nice chunky single that I'll be happy to leave as a single & well, this ain't it -
Can anyone say 'overspun'?
I spent 1 & a half hours doing this. Part of me is sitting, head in hands going WTF is that? & another part is loling & going woah, cool! I'll wash & whack the hell out of it & see what happens but I suspect it'll eventually wind up plied with something commercially spun . . .
On a happier note I also spent 45 minutes plying the merino/nylon from yesterday -
I now have 256 yards of gorgeously squooshy DKish crochet-spun yarn that is destined to become a pretty scarf.
