Belladune was right........the thread needs to be held straight while the spun yarn is held at a slight angle.
actually I was just about tension... it was feverdream who was about the angles
Thanks for the well wishes. All is fine. I just had to get something to calm my stomach down. Gastritis = no fun! I've been staring at fiber for days without being able to mess with it. So I have to get my energy level back up for spinning!!
Ugh sounds like no fun SML! and I feel you about the energy levels.. so glad I' m out of my first trimester... I might start getting some energy back myself finally, so that I can deal with 8lbs (
) of fiber i have sitting in my closet.
What kind of thread do yo use for spinning boucle yarn?
All I use for my boucle is cotton sewing thread to match (or contrast, depending on the look I want.) it's all i've got and no good supply stores of any kind close enough to make a trip when I'm feeling like boucle.
