I’m ridiculously pleased with myself as my wool spinning made leaps and bounds in progress. When I first started, the wool was lumpy, uneven in diameter and it broke every two inches.
There was a ton of waste.
And suddenly it clicked. It was only breaking every foot and a half!
And now I’m a pro! Okay, okay….it is still lumpy and uneven but I could go an hour or two without it breaking! I have one braid all spun onto my one and only bobbin!
Until I can score some more bobbins, I will have to wind this on paper towel tubing. Then I have to decide if I will leave it as is and knit it as one ply (there are too many thin spots that will likely break during knitting so I don’t think I will do that), or spin the other braid and put them together and use it as two ply (the colors will get mixed up that way so I am fairly sure I wont do that) or try to Navajo ply that will make a strong 3 ply wool that I can control some of the color mixing. As you can see, I am leaning towards that. Just a bit scared I will ruin my work doing that…. What to do…what to do!
