Nifty Knitter- Ha! That's what I use the treadmill for! I must say I love your style and the way you spin! Was that alpaca fiber 100% or a blend? I have over a lb. of Premium Alpaca First Cuts and they are simply beautiful, only problem, I hate spinning alpaca alone so I must blend...with my ashford student hand cards O_O BLISTERS!!! Lol! But again, great job Cheesy

25  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you knit with your handspun? on: July 30, 2007 06:00:44 PM
Depending on how much I spun, I normally knit alot of earflap hats, but when I have a thick and thin yarn, which sounds like what you got, I would say if you have enough do a wide scarf in stockinette stitch, I made a scarf out of my first thick and thin and it was knit tightly so the stitches were defined and then I knit it kinda wide so when it curls it had alot of the stitches still showing Cheesy Hope that kinda made sense and that was just my suggestion for a scarf, but the only concern I would have with that would be to make sure you have enough yarn to make the length you want Cheesy\

Hope you figure it out and I hope to see the finished product!!! Good Luck

I'm at the library right now but I will post a pic of the 2 skeins I have finished so far!

I love all of them so far, but I really love the Alpaca with Lincoln Locks, I would love to spin a yarn like that, did you spin a alpaca single and then ply it with thread adding in the locks as you went? Anyways Love everything and can't wait to see more Cheesy

30  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: setting the twist on: July 18, 2007 05:08:27 AM
If your yarn does not twist up on itself to much it is best not to weight it. Weighting the yarn stretches the fiber and creates a less squishy, springy yarn. Weighted yarn is best for weaving and unweighted yarn is best for knitting/crochet. However use the guidlines as you see fit. The fun thing about these rules is breaking them  Wink

See that's what I thought, but I am a knitter and only have a niddy noddy, so most of the time I set the twist and weight my yarns but I guess I should be putting it back onto my niddy noddy so I dont stretch it, that way I can knit it ... erm..i guess you would say Better? I have noticed when my skeins dry they are alot skinnier and not as squishy, so thanks that helps!
