she may have posted too many pictures???
Can you blame me though? I'm pretty proud of this. I have a loooong way to go, but if you asked me 1 year ago, would I be spinning. I would laugh a long, loud one, and say, nope, not until I retire. Well, retirement isn't happening...not soon enough anyways. ;)
I finished the singles in September, and they rested...and rested...
Until this last weekend. After practicing some Navajo plying with some leftovers and viewing this You-tube tutorial, I said, go for it....
So I did! I had 2 bobbins and plied each one separately on my jumbo flyer. I finished one, then added the second one in so this is one big skein..
Well, maybe I'm fibbing a bit....it's not that large...
When I spun it, I didn't really pay attention to the colors, I wanted them to go wherever. My pre-drafting wasn't the best, I was winging it. When I was plying it, I was trying my best to match the colors, but since the color lengths weren't consistent, it was a bit harder. You can see I was a little bit successful.
Approximately 144yds of dk/light worsted with a wee bit o'chunky in for the heck of it ;)
9 wpi...um..what else did you wanna know ;) I'm new at this handspun recording stuff.
Here you go, the before destruction shot!

I really like spinning the Falkland and I really enjoy Navajo plying....very zen..
Next fiber to be spun is some superwash merino, stay tuned...
