So, Spinning, lovely, lovely spinning. The picture I showed yesterday of this:
This is the lovely Falling Leaves yarn that I was making. I decided I didn't want the barber pole effect so I ended up Navajo Plying it by itself. This will of course mean that there isn't enough of this alone to knit the gloves, so it will probably be paired with a yarn of similar size, maybe a black. The only problem then was, it was still thinner than I wanted, about lace-weight, so I Navajo Plied it again. Yes, you read that right, this yarn was Navajo Plied twice, making it a 9-ply yarn and it is still only around a sport weight. I will know for sure when I take it off the bottle tomorrow and see what the WPI is.
Yes, I spin this thin. I tried when I first started spinning to spin thin and even singles. Now, it comes too naturally to spin this thin. So, onto the next spinning project:
This is some spinning that I am attempting to spin at a thicker single . . . unfortunately it's still a little thin, but I am trying . . . after all, learning is a constant, right?
This is the roving that the above spinning comes from. This is a small amount that I painted back in Washington State when I was there this summer. My mom and I painted some roving together. I have to admit, I wasn't sure how it was going to end up looking, but I think the spinning above is turning out pretty nice.
Down here at the bottom is a quick bit a spun up of it and test knitted to see how it would look. I like the look of the colors and that there is a distinction between each color.
