Lovely! Smiley

  Quite delicate looking for 10 count!  If you don't mind me asking, how many strands of floss did you use?

I'm going to admit that, Ravenau1, your drafting is much better then mine... are you sure you haven't done this before? I'll have to try and be more patient I guess.

Definitely never done it before Belladune!  But the fibre seems to be quite long, so I think that makes drafting easier?

themuppet, a felt smile is a great idea! I love it  Grin

I am having a laugh at the idea of your little one hugging the fibre lol.  My Hubby is the complete opposite.  He HATES wool of any description lol.  He won't touch it at all, says that the feel of it "gives him the creeps".  I was knitting some squares once and a ball of wool fell off the pile and rolled toward him on the couch, I've never seen him move so quick lol. 

So, I watched the vids and read Jane's instructions so I had a go this morning.  The only issues I had are that I didn't split the fibre quite evenly, and one piece was thicker than the other three, so to get it the same thickness as the others it actually ended up being longer.  Does that make sense? lol.  I have a few thicker and thinner bits going through but I am assuming that's a matter of practice.  I don't want to make it any thinner as I am worried it will break.  Each piece of the original fibre ended up being twice as long after it was drafted.  Is that ok?

Here's what I started out with:

After I divided the 1/2 yard (ish) length and drafted each piece.   You can see the longer piece here!  Embarrassed

Bit closer:

I hope that's not too many pics!  If it is, let me know.

Thanks Jane!  Grin  Can't wait to get started tomorrow!

Hope you didn't do too much damage to your leg!  Sad
