Hi Spinners,

I've been studying the threads day and night and even though the answer must be hiding somewhere her ei go and shoot away...

Can anyone suggest a good link where the steps of making  multicoloured/rainbow yarns/singles?
I saw CountingMermaids 's fab yarns and loved her photos showing of carding... I just kind of want more in between ones too... Tongue

Is it possible to make something like that with a drop spindle (after like years of practice? Grin) Huh

I've seen some really gorgious blankets this weekend in a shop....

They were made using chunky singles and were kind of loosely woven into a blanket...It was sturdy but airy at the same time...Does anyone know what i think? Roll Eyes

Anyways if you greatest of great spinners feel like getting your cams out pleeeeeeeease do....

 Kiss Kiss :-*Thanks ahead: Zizi

You just need a spindle to match the weight of yarn you want to create.  For most beginners, a 1.75 oz or 50 g spindle works well.

When's the last time you were inspired?
