Yeah, I know, it’s almost disappointing that there is no scandal. I’m not cheating on my husband, I’m just fawning over the wheel. I’m so odd.
But I really do love this wheel! I’m making really good time on my roving. Last night, I finished spinning up another 2 ounces of 50/50 Merino/Tussah by Wolf Creek into cobweb singles.
I was pleasantly surprised yet delighted with the results. I guess it is true that you really do get what you pay for. As some may say garbage in, garbage out. The higher quality roving is very easy to spin, almost all the flaws just disappear! I am so glad I bought the braid. I really love this roving…and my Wendy!
What will become of these singles? Navajo or 2-Ply? Cowl? Shawl? Maybe both? Any suggestion, my wonderful readers?
Speaking of spinning, here are some cobweb singles spun from tops–Shetland, Merino/Tussah, Merino/Tencel, and Merino/Baby Camel:
I have been lingering longer than usual on just lace spinning…it’s time to move on to plying exploration or spinning novelty yarns, don’t you think?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
