Spinning Lesson #4

I showed Jan the yarn I had spun from the batts I had carded.  

I noted that I had first spun the single ply and felt that the yarn was not very strong so, since I really enjoyed the Navajo plying; I decided to do that to strengthen the yarn; which it did.  I believed that the reason the yarn was this way was because I had not done enough when carding it into a batt.  Jan was pleased I had noted that.

We decided to try spinning on Jan’s spinning wheel; this brought me back to the first day I spun with the drop spindle – oh my, it looks so easy when you are watching someone but believe me it requires a lot of coordination. 


I truly admire those who make it look so easy….
