WHAT A DIFFERENCE from spinning blanket roving instead of seconds like I had been using. I truly could not believe how easily it spun and how strong it was with just the single ply; but of course, I did Navajo ply it because, I REALLY like doing that.
I brought Jan 4 oz. of that roving; like she really needed any more roving - what a stash! - worse than my quilting fabric stash!
I sat down at Jan’s spinning wheel again and this time I did much better than the first time; I was able to get into the rhythm of the wheel and actually keep the fiber spinning.
I practiced on the carding machine again and created some thick batts; then Jan had a surprise for me – we made felt out of the batt – there goes my mind creating again!!!
Jan and I are becoming GREAT friends...
