Spinning Away the Hours
This past Friday evening was the start of the plying for my Coopworth sweater yarn. I managed to ply the entire 6 1/2 bobbins by Sunday night. The result was 1.5 pounds and 996 yards of worsted weight yarn. I now need to pick up another pound of this lovely fiber from Sandi tomorrow. I don't know where my head was the night I bought the fiber. I know I need between 2 1/2 to 3 pounds to make a sweater to cover my fluffy body. The diet is going well, but, not that well. I know I won't fit into a size large or extra large sweater. Besides, I like them loose and comfy not body forming.
In today's mail, was the fiber for CJKopec's Spin-A-Long. I might start that tonight and see how it looks. Options for spinning are to just grab an end and go for it or tear of sections and spin from the fold. The possibility is a single of each and then ply them together for a different look. I don't know yet.
Well, I'm off to toss the clothes in the washer and dryer. It's the tale of the never ending laundry...........
