Oh my gosh, this is so cute. I know it's a machine pattern but I don't have a machine like that- I still wish I could get a patch like that though- know anyone who sells them?

So basically, I'd felt a reaaaally long snake, then crochet/knit with that; am I right?

Honestly, the yarn you linked to is practically roving. It's probably knit on huge needles. If you want yarn that big, split your roving down the middle and full it.

Haha so maybe I haven't read all there is... I've got a general sense of fulling, but how would i do that?

Alright, so I just bought my drop spindle, and I have some roving to work with, AND I've read everything, watched every video possible. I feel like I am ready to start, lol

BUT everyone seems to be spinning very thin diameter yarns. what I was looking to create was a REALLY fat yarn, almost like I was crocheting with the roving I got. For some examples, please see these pictures:

I assume this kind of fat yarn would take more per pound of roving, and that's fine with me, but is it even possible a) at all and b) on a drop spindle? Would it be really hard? Should I try something else for my first yarn, or do you have any tips to help me get this kind of yarn?

thank you so much in advance!
