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 ;)
Yay! Finally some spun!!!! It looks great! Holy crud how many bobbins did you get w/your wheel?!
Wow!! So pretty!! Okay, that crinkly art yarn picture worried me a tad, but it is amazing how it looks at the end!!
And I just love the pink!!!
I love it! I love singles...I search for them in yarn shops and almost always end up buying one a skein I've never tried. I'm not sure why, though. And yet I seem to always spin with an eye toward plying.
You've inspired me to do some spinning this afternoon and finish up a ball of roving that's almost done.
Love the color! Envious.
Pretty stuff! I really like it post-fulling. I may have to try that out one of these days.
Ooo, that turned out great! Can't wait to see it knitted up.
Gorgeous and I learned a lot. I never spin singles because I need to ply to correct my overspin. You may have set me a challenge. Can't wait to see what you make with this.
You are getting SO good!
Looks like you did a great job spinning those singles. I love the colors.
I can't wait to see your scarf. You will be surprised how nice it knits up even with those energized singles! Singles will never be balanced though - takes plying to acomplish that. So enjoy the energy!
I do the same thing with my bobbins too - fill them up than start plying!
Nice job on the singles!
That turned out beautifully -- well done!!
You did a great job spinning, it looks fantastic!
