The First Attempts....
I'm back and here to show you my first 3 skeins of handspun yarn! =) My first skein of yarn came out pretty horrible...hahaha. But! I'm learning.... The first time I used my wheel was amazing, I knew right when I started that it was going to be an addiction.
There's not much to say about each skein that I've spun, only that with each skein I can see improvement, which is exciting for me!
Once again, my first skein is NOT good, but I'll share it anyway...it's actually kind of funny... =)
I didn't bother figuring out the yardage when I wound this on my niddy noddy, I'll never use it, but I'll keep it just because it'll be fun to have!
My next skein is semi-usable, I even counted the yardage! It's approximately 64 yards, and will work ok for felting =)
Lastly, my third one is usable but far from perfect! However, it's by far my best yet! I have had SO much fun spinning, I've done very little crocheting since I got my wheel, but that's what happens when you get a new toy =)
I really like the color of this skein I spun, it reminds me of autumn...it is approximately 120 yards and is probably more of a worsted weight yarn. I have a yarn gauge to find the weight of the yarns I spin, but this skein isn't perfectly spun up, so worsted weight is more of a guess =) I was actually pretty happy with this skein, I didn't think it was terribly bad considering it was literally the third time I had ever used a spinning wheel! =)
My next project is definitely going to be kool aid dying, it looks so fun! =) That'll be my next post for sure! I may take some pictures of some new fiber I ordered as well! =) That's all for now!
Have a good day!
