Aaah…My new road buddy lived up to it's name this past week!
I am so impressed with this little wheel! This is that Spunky Eclectic, Slow Burn I have been spinning on for a couple days. I only got two ounces of it. But that was enough to break in the wheel, I think. The process was so enjoyable, I spun at work too! So awesome!
I love the fiery colors!
As I neared the end of the spin, it got a little orangey-green. Beautiful!
And here's the final skein…which leads me to the plying on this wheel…
It's not the best set-up. But it's doable. Again, my knee has to be the barrier for keeping the singles out of the way of the flyer and bobbin. Watching it so I make sure it stays put, puts the quality of yarn at risk. Of course, there were fewer times where it got caught this time around. Probably about two or three, total. And the yarn came out much more stable and a bit more uniform..
Not bad, says I.
