Now this is what we call spinning
Yardage: 452 yards from just under 5oz
WPI: 17 wraps (around fingering)
Material: Superwash Lambswool
The Spinner: Happy Happy Happy!
It was realy a pleasure to up the ratio to 20:1 and spin thin like I'm used to doing on my spindle. I loved watching the blues come togeather. I wish there had been a little more of the super dark stuff but I think the socks will turn out quite lovely.
Just for the sheer pretty - below are the singles before plying! This stuff is so soft and it was super easy to draft.
Now on to my sock roving (see previous post for colours
I still wanna see what the other roving is going to grow up to be though! I really think it's going to be pretty - have fun with it :-)
