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

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!
