Yay! My first Fiber Friday!
First - This thread totally inspired me to try my hand at spinning so thank you guys for sharing your beautiful work each week. I am loving all the yarns so far. Bisongrass is BEAUTIFUL Lufah and I love the color combo in land and deep water myklia!
So here are mine for the week. My second, third, and forth attempts at spinning on my drop spindle.
Battlestar - unknown wool just for practice with silver firestar and plied with silver thread. About 16 yards. For sure easier than my first attempt
Tiger Tails and Bubblegum - merino with bits of firestar. 36 yards. WAY over twisted and coiling in on itself (even after setting the twist) but had fun playing with the colors.
Fruit Loops - unknown wool that froggy fibers sent with the drop spindle (thank you!) and plied with embroidery thread. I just couldn't resist trying kool aid dying, which is a lot of fun and my yarn smells so fruity! About 17 yards
I wish I had someone in person to show me best how to split down the roving, show me how to do my joins better, and tips for better spinning on the spindle. I have so much to learn yet.
Super ditto to that. I am doing the pre-draft/spin/park it/twist it method and I feel like it takes me much longer that just learning to draft while spinning. Practice, practice, practice.
