Thanks to a few threads on Ravelry aimed at either spinning down stash or spinning for a lace project, I’ve been motivated to pull my poor neglected wheel out of my fiber room and do some spinning. I’ve even managed to finish(-ish) a couple of projects that have been languishing. On Monday night, I finally finished spinning the singles from those green merino/silk batts that were my first drum carding experiment. They went sadly unfinished during the Ravelympics, but there is an end in sight now. Here’s proof:
All that’s left is to ply it. I think I’m going to try making a plying ball to see if that works better than plying from a center-pull ball. The only thing I’m slightly worried about is that I know there are some spots where the singles are more than a bit thin. I’m already anticipating them breaking as I try to create a plying ball.
