on the bobbins

As I proved last week, I can follow a crowd. In addition to the Bird in Hand craze, I also got on board with the NaSpiMoMo fun. (Side note: I always want to say "Nasty Momo." Call me juvenile ...)

I'm working on 12 oz of merino that I bought at Rhinebeck this year, in shades of green, blue, and purple.

(Pardon the flash. Winter days -- and the lack of daylight -- really suck.)

I'm spinning it thin enough to chain-ply into a worsted weight yarn that I will knit into a Clapotis. At least, that's the plan. I did some sampling and got pretty much what I wanted. Let's just see if I can stay consistent through all 12 ounces. Remember, I'm still pretty new at this!

  • I'm impressed that you actually have a plan for what you're spinning. I should try that!

  • Beautiful colors. Clap? Consistency becomes the hobgoblin of little minds. Clap will forgive.

  • It looks great! And that's a terrific plan. I haven't knit a lot with handspun, but I learned when I knit the Mafghan square that the knitting forgives a lot of inconsistency.

  • Is that a Woolee Winder or are you just insanely good at making your bobbins even? (Which is entirely possible...)

  • That's beautiful. Very even spinning, and I love the colorway. (Like that's a surprise.)
