These 2 lucky bobbins got picked. I knew they were going to be singles anyways when I spun them.
I had a hard time adjusting my wheel to take in the fiber, and it was my first time trying not to spin too thin as well. I recently added a polycord turbo drive band and am using it as a single drive. I think it stretched too much and thus the problems I had with this roving. However, hubs helped me
Remember this pencil roving, well it was double stranded and I think I really should have split it, it would have easier to draft, but hey, you gotta learn from your mistakes.
So I perservered and here's your "coin" shot on the niddy noddy.
And a close up
Not too shabby!
Well until they were removed from the NN. Um..can you say...
Highly energized singles! I had a laugh though, my first art yarn??
So before I hung them up to dry I fulled them, to make them look more like Lamb's pride singles. I learned how to full the singles here. I thwacked and stretched and hoped for a good turn out.
I don't think it looks too bad!
and exactly 10wpi
Cute wpi tool huh! You can find them here
3-1/4oz BFL pencil roving from the FiberDenn
Yep, I'm copying how you post your handpun, Shannon ;)
