Last night, I andean plied up last bit of 4-oz Smokey Merino Tussah Silk spun on lace spindle. It was very soothing, great way to wind down after a chaotic day at the fairground. Don’t forget to tuck and keep track of the free end of the singles yarn into your watch band or cuff…You’ll be glad that you did latter on!
Gently pull the yarn off your middle finger. Don’t lose that ring that was formed around the middle finger, but, let it sit by your wrist; then slip the bracelet of singles around until the ring is on the back of your wrist.
To fully understood it, you really need to give it a try–a really nifty technique I absolutely LOVE!
