The men folk are watching a lot of football around here these days…
Gave me some time to do some plying with this stuff last night. 🙂
It always amazes me how much yarn I get from little, old spindles! And it’s so simple a process. With these spindles I tried two different cop styles. A loose adaptation of a football shape and the usual cone shape. I think I still prefer the cone, but I enjoyed spinning on the cherry spindle better. I am finding that the purpleheart needs a little maintenance…That whorl just won’t stay put anymore. It slipped a lot during the spinning. The notches would roll around and the hook wouldn’t be lined up. Somehow, that would make the singles slip out the notch and then I might sound something like what the fellas sound like on a fumble!
But, we made it!
I plied the singles last night on my Joy and I got 510 yds of 2ply with some left over for a chain plied yarn.
I really didn’t realize how tired I was from staying up until I was at work, pressing the button to unlock my car while expecting the door of my office to open! Fortunately, that happened closer to the end of the day, lol.
Look at all that color! And it’s SO shiny. Love!
Still needs to be washed. But, it’s spun!
Once again, the stash has been adequately enhanced. 🙂
