8401  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Handspun Yarn & Fiber Swap Round 2 (SIGNUPS CLOSED, SEND OUTS July 11, 2009) on: June 08, 2009 01:38:14 PM
Merino is just a real bear to process.  It is so fine that it really needs to be handled very, very gently else it breaks and that is when you get your neps and noils.


wish I'd known that before I bought 2 pounds.....  Its probably not a great fiber for a complete fiber newb to start learning to process...  Hopefully the wes... that long wool I bought is more forgiving...

thanks Cyndi,  I sadly don't have combs.  But I'll try less fiber on the cards and see if that makes a difference. 

Bella, any type of smooth comb should work.  You might want to try spritzing a hair detangler on it (do they still make that stuff?)

they do still make hair detangler. Smiley
funny part about all this is I carded my southdown (itchy terrible stuff for spinning really, bought it for felting) and it turned out beautifuly on the cards.. Maybe I'm not gentle enough with the merino..?  I really need to find time to go to a class....

at this point what I made is done, and Cheiri, I'm in the same boat!!  My idea is spot on, but execution failed.  well not fail so much as its not as stunning as it should be.  I think it's a redo.  I'll redo it until I get it right!!!
I'm so having a hard time with one tiny thing!!  I want to make a bunch and send em out, but I know I can only do one. so I have to get it perfect!

Please please please don't stress about me being disappointed or whatever! I've very easily pleased and I'm a noob at like everything and I will love it I promise because of the thought that's gone into it, how flattering you've been about having me for a partner, and the fact that you are a way more accomplished crafter than I am [grin] Anything you make will be awesome, I'm sure.

I know exactly what I'm making you, I just haven't actually sat down and made it yet. Tomorrow!

Oh I fixed it!!  its perfect now.   well almost.. it has to _____ and I'll perfect the imperfections.  Oh and I dunno if I'm a more accomplished crafter....  but thank you for thinking so!  I'll love anything you send to, noobish or not.  I'm sure it will be wonderful!
so excited  to recieve!  I'll hopefully send on tuesday.   I have no idea how long it takes to get across the pond...  I just hope its quick!

no clue as to why the darts would make you look pregnant, but I think the blue really livens it up, looks great!
