First Spinning (2014)
|Fibre: Blue faced Leicester (BFL)
Method: Drop spindle
Completed: August 30, 2014.
I posted a blog post with my first efforts at spinning with the drop spindle and then plying. This was the first effort in creating yarn I might actually use. I was aiming for a sock weight result, and missed it pretty completely. I can’t spin singles that are fine enough (yet). But, it was fun! And, I wound up with about 3.3oz of yarn — most of it 3-ply, some of it 2-ply. Not sure what I’ll do with it, but I have to say: even though the yarn itself has a fairly rugged, I have to keep petting it and squooshing it… it’s my yarn!
