Feeling optimistic last week, after spinning up all the roving that I had in the house, I chose to purchase 8 ounces of Daffodil (think I blogged about that earlier) and on my day three of spinning (feeling what is in retrospect, overly confident) I really made a mess of it. So after more than a few minutes of frustration, I walked away, leaving this mess!
The title of this should be "Learning Curves are Hell!"
Saturday (which would have been day 4 of spinning) I tried again. Results were better but thumbs were sore from the work with drafting the yarn. Here is a pic of the work done on day 4.
You can see some thick and some thinner pieces. I'm told this is normal for the learning process. But I'll call it "Fat & Skinny."
I knew the wheel was due back to the store today, so I immediately set about to finish up the remaining daffodil and white roving and then ply them together. I guess this is day 5 or 6 or something like that. Anyway, the results were better today, thumbs sore as well. My "skeins" are drying from the bath to "set the twist" but here is a pic of today's work. I think these are more consistent in diameter, which is what is making my thumbs hurt!
