Fall is in full swing and we have had our first frost. The kids are LOVING the temperatures and have been spending every minute we can outside. So this weekend I lugged my wheel out to the patio and spun while my kids played.
I am still spinning the 4 ounces of merino blend in the purple color from The Shepherd’s Mill. I am still very much learning. I break my singles A LOT and have to rethread. I am also spinning very thick and thin but for the most part I am getting a single spun that holds together. I am about 4 hours in to this spin.
Giving myself permission to go slow, make mistakes and just learn along the way. Haven’t quite got to the “zen” spinning but my fingers get a little less stressed as I go.
Forgive my spinning ignorance but what if the finished product is “unknittable”? What can one do with the yarn? Can it be unspun and reused?
I am by no means an expert but I don’t believe you can take apart spinning and unspin it. Some people use hand spun yo weave little art projects with?
Sounds complicated. I’m excited to follow your spinning adventure. 🙂
