|My first spin.....|
|...then it got better....|
|and better yet!|
|of course I had to knit something with my yarn...a cowl|
But felting is my first love and things have evened out lately and I am now spending about an equal amount of time spinning and felting. Well, there is another avenue I have ventured down this past month but that is another blog entry!
The yarn on the bottom was the yarn I learned how to correctly ply on at Lori's. That was an "ah ha!" discovery and so key to a good yarn! I'm currently using it to knit a hat pattern that Lori wrote. I feel pretty good about these, while I would love to be able to get these thinner, sock weight, I
realize it will come with time
and practice. Couldn't tell you
what weight these are, I'm not a
seasoned enough knitter/ spinner to know that just by looking at it! Usually the nice label on the skein of yarn tells me that, guess I better get with it and figure it out.
I'll try and do better............
