« on: December 26, 2006 12:26:36 PM »

I'm a fairly new spinner - I've spun up less than a single lb of fiber that I bought to play with - and  I'm still at the stage where I'm totally fascinated that I'm actually making yarn.

Now.. to that add the fact that I love colour and dyeing.. and that I love my camera with the loverly super macro lens.. Here's my latest creeation..

http://createdby.artsygal.net/media/users/artsygal/Dec06/rainbowyarnporn.jpg

In all, I have about 6 oz of this yarn - I haven't measured the yardage yet, but since my 3 oz skein came to 150 yards plied, and the singles here are similar in weight to those, it stands to logic that this should be atleast 4 times as much, right?

I haven't decided whether to ply it or to keep it as a single yet - the colours look so delicious like this that I hate to mix them up by plying.

Navajho plying would prolly keep the colors from getting mixed together, if you think you're ready for something that freaky.  lol.  It isn't too bad but it's unusual at first.

The colors are gorgeous!

That's really pretty, I love those colors!

My experience is that there aren't any hard and fast rules when it comes to estimating yardage - at least with what I spin.  When I started spindling, I could maybe get 120 yards of singles out of 4 oz. roving.  I wound off 4 oz. of navajo-plied yarn last night, and I have 210 yards.  Obviously, I'm spinning a lot thinner now, but I'm still a long way from having enough yardage for a pair of socks from 4 oz. of roving!  Maybe if I hadn't navajo plied, but I wanted to keep the colors distinct.  That's the best part of spinning - even the experimentation is fun!
