Only two more lengths to spin!
Today, I got to spin down to the last two lengths between laundry loads and I will probably be done this spin tonight before bed. But, I noticed the cop was smaller compared to the size I remember the other spindle being at this point. So, I took them out to compare.
It's just important for spinning on-the-go to know just how much I can pack on these things. As a self-confessed bag lady, I might get stranded somewhere on an island with just my spindle and some fluff. It.has.to.be.able.to.fit!
Once upon a time, a spinner suggested I try the football-shaped cop to wind my cop as she could pack more onto her spindle that way. Well, there's only one other thing that is important for my cop-winding…Turns out as long as the cop loos good, I don't mind it either way. :) But, it seems I am packing on more with the regular coned-shaped cop.
It just seems like it's more compact given the way I wound these. With only two lengths left to go, all of that fluff is going to easily fit on this spindle. On the first spindle, I wasn't quite so sure. Not to say I won't wind a football shape again because it's just good-looking to me, lol. But, I think I will try to experiment with how to tighten the cop in that form next time.
But aren't they cute? ;)
Hoping by this time tomorrow I will have some new handspun to play with!
