Undoubtedly you've heard the phrase, "Practice makes perfect." Well in my case, after only spinning 3 teeny skeins of yarn, it's more like Practice Make More Yarn. Here's my latest handspun: 31 yds of a bulky wt, 100% merino single in a pumpkin spice colorway (the lighting in my craft room wasn't the greatest). It was spun from 2 oz. of Merino that Katie of DomestiKated Darling gifted me. My spinning isn't seeing vast improvements yet, but I'm getting used to pre-drafting, the park and draft method, and winding it off.
Here is a pic of all 3 of my handspun singles. Although the colors are hard to see in this pic, they are perfect candy corn colors! I've only soaked the gold yarn. So today, the pumpkin and natural colors will each get a bath. When they dry, I'll have about 90 yds of handspun to work with. I think perhaps I'll knit up a rustic candy corn cowl for the fall season. Then I'll have a project that is functional and represents my amateur attempts at handspun (drop spindle) yarns. I'm not going to bother to ply these. They are so bulky - super bulky, that I'll just knit them as singles.
