How do you steam block?  It seems I'm having the same problem, ack.  But I guess I'll have to fix it after I give it to my mum for Christmas, because there's no time now.

The scarf, which is a gift for my mum as I said.  Please forgive the look on my face; cameras hate me and I was blinking in the only picture that showed the scarf well, ack.

And what became of the little bit I had left over after making the scarf and a little cat toy.  Which the cats happened to find before Christmas and it didn't entirely survive.   Sad  Note:  alpaca + cat nip = savage man-eating cats!

12  Re: Gallery of truly terrible handspun yarns - donate your pix! in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by facelikeallama on: November 05, 2005 09:01:31 PM
Haha, so, um, I think my first attempt at spinning beats anything else that anybody will ever post on this thread.  XD  A friend suggested that I name it "Sickdog Poo."

I think a lot of it is the fault of the roving I bought.  I couldn't find any and ended up buying .5 ounces for 6 bucks at a teeny yarn store.  The fibers are incredibly short, fuzzy, and kinda resemble pubes.  Uhm, eww?

I don't think the way the crappy fibers are spun looks all that bad, though.  Maybe when I buy some proper roving online, my end result wont resemble feces, haha!

My lovely 1 foot long scarf!  Tongue  I'm such a slow knitter, but seeing as this is my first real knitting project, I suppose it's allowed.

I'm knitting it straight rather than circular because I couldn't find circular needles in the right length and I couldn't be assed to buy them online.  It's folded in half in the picture.

I sorta wish I had made the rows taller, but oh well.  I'm still proud.  Cheesy
