You spin me right round


I’m seeing some improvement in my spinning – my twist is more even and I am able to keep a fairly consistent thickness. Keeping the twist under control is my ongoing challenge: since I usually spin while watching a movie, I tend to speed up and slow down depending on what’s going on in the movie. Gotta work on that.

Anyway, here’s a skein I just finished. It’s a two-ply, handpainted wool and I got about 147 yards out of it. I plan on making a baby hat from this! I haven’t checked the gauge yet, but it looks to be about a sport weight yarn.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure.
