OMG. I am SO sorry for what you are about to see…
I have such a problem just taking so many photos of one item-especially when I like it! :) It’s really innocent. I don’t mean to. It’s just that I get a little carried away. And it gets a little embarrassing to say the least. SO indulgent.
But, you’ll just have to suffer along with me today, lol!
This was a few days ago. This was probably about a little over half-way through what I had left.
And this is earlier today.
I used that ball winder trick again to get this done a little faster.
Then, I plied a 2-ply yarn on the wheel. I stuck my thumb through the center to keep it from collapsing in on itself. These are thinner singles than the yellow bulky weight singles I did before. I didn’t have to worry about it collapsing so much with that skein. But, this one was a little scarier. If it collapses into the center, a mess of tangles results and you could lose a lot of work in the long run and a lot of yarn in the finished skein. Ask me how I know. The thumb worked out though.
That’s kinda pretty. :)
And…here’s where I get a little redundant…
(Hey, you were warned.)
But I love how this yarn came out!
Alright, I really got to get some other stuff done. Remember this? My first time spinning cotton on a wheel.
Finally got to the other side of the bobbin and am packing a little on here and there. I’m getting a little faster now as I get the hang of it. I think I’m beginning to smell another FO…
We’ll see if I can restrain myself next time.
