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