I had started this spin, probably two spin-ins ago. But, I just finished it today and I had to show you!
It's my second ever cable yarn!🙂 What do you think?
If you can remember, a cabled yarn is two 2-ply yarns combined into one 4-ply yarn. The two 2-ply yarns have to be overspun in order to have enough twist for the 4-ply. See those bobbins above? I snapped that right before spinning up the cabled yarn. That's some tight yarn!
This time I actually took the time to be sure the yarn was a bit more consistent than the first attempt. Doesn't mean perfect, of course. Just means this one has less irregularity, I think. I was so excited to try it the first time, I kind of threw the consistency idea by the wayside, lol. This time, I made the extra effort. Not sure which I'm more attracted to yet though. Sometimes, I really like the look of yarn that has been more obviously touched by the hand…other times, I like a yarn that is closer to your standard, all-purpose yarn. What's that about?!
Geez. As usual, this still needs to be washed. It would be better to show you after a wash and the yarn has relaxed into its twist. This, I do know. What I don't know is why I always have to show you these things the second I'm done, lol.
But, look! It's yarn!!
