and I'm a spin-a-holic.
I think me and the wheel (must think of a name) are joined at the treadle. Knitting? What's that?
First up, the bobbin on the left is spindle-spun and wound onto the bobbin for plying. The bobbin on the right was spun today on the wheel of course. I managed to match the thickness of the singles pretty well so I'm feeling a bit smug! This pic is flash-less and is a little bluer than the real thing.
Here they are plied together, once again pic without flash. There's about 5ogms, 140 metres and is pretty much DK weight all through the skein.
And a close-up on the right, pic taken with flash.
Finally, because impatience is my middle name, I've started spinning the clown tops. I'm trying to spin quite thinly because I want to make socks with the end product. I hope I've got it right and I suppose I'll find out soon enough.
