Woolly Wednesday- Getting underway
World of Wool. I have no idea what it is, but it is lovely and soft! Anyhow, whilst spinning this my spinning improved tremendously, and I became far more consistent, so I have another fancy wool, I plied two bobbins together, and I have some bits that are thick plied with thin, or thin plied with thin. Will have to think what to do with it! Plying it raised a few questions for me. What do you do when one bobbin runs out, and you still have some wool left on the other? Is there any way of splitting the remaining wool between two bobbins, so you can ply the rest of it? Or do you just have to keep it as single ply?
Another thing that has become apparent, as I am loving spinning, but keep wondering what to do with all the yarn I am creating. Do you spin with a project in mind? Or just spin to process the fleece, and hope a project comes to you at some point!
Sarah. She has been busy dyeing and thought I would appreciate some lovely wool to practice with. Thank you, I will look forward to spinning this, and hope to do it justice!
