7311  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Learn to Spin. Step 2: Drafting on: January 30, 2010 06:13:03 AM
yes, the length of the fiber would make it easier... I just get distracted and start pulling willy nilly... Still trying to convince hubby to bring me some roving from the basement for more practice.


SML i agree with you, I was shocked when she just ripped that batt up too.  I guess thats still a newbish type thing i do, gentle with my batts... If they are multi colored, and have a few layers, I start pulling the colors apart... not sure why... I suppose it gives a different yarn when you just take a chunk and draft it out like she does in the video... I'm going to have to try this with one of my batts...

I'm going to admit that, Ravenau1, your drafting is much better then mine... are you sure you haven't done this before? I'll have to try and be more patient I guess.

yum guys, these fibers are delicious!!  I can't wait to get at my wheel again... to bad my mom moved ALL my fiber downstairs out of my bedroom closet at the request of my husband (and I still don't dare do stairs..).. yes I've got a functional closet that houses what should be in a bedroom/linen closet, but I can't get to my fiber!
MLF- those yarns look so perfect! lucky you to have the time to spin spin spin!
K_cat, those sheep do look happy, beautiful pic, and beautiful yarn!
Cheyenneswthrt07, your spindle is beautiful!  and that burgundy is fabulous!
