like a record baby
Am so proud i am breaking the agreement with BFG (the one that reads: the first sign of insanity is posting more than once a day).
I MADE YARN!!!!!
This is it all plyed and cuddley. It was firstly pretty overspun and curling back on itself, but i plyed it in the opposite direction with some merino 3-ply i bought at an op-shop last week and I'm pretty happy with the results.
Ok so it's dirty, it's greasy and a few grass-seeds got past me but its mine darn it!
My neighbour Jo was very helpful and told me that beginner yarns have 'character'. i agree. in fact i had some yarn just like it in my stash!
It's about 40metres so i might have to spin some more... as soon as i reglue the bobbins together, glue the wheel and get the rust out of the orifice..... but i dont care how much work is involved because I MADE YARN!
are you proud??
Also, here it is posing next to some Colourworks hand painted yarn ($6 per ball). not too shabby...
