Handspun Friday - Grand Tetons
When I drafted this fiber I did not like it. I did not understand why I bought it in the first place. I spun two of those pre-drafted nests, very thin, and thought I could not stand to spin the rest of it the same way. So I spun as thick as I could, which turned out a little thick/thin, and plied it together with the thin singles. It was not until I saw this photo of the finished yarn, that I started to like it. I took many photos, but this one I liked best.
fiber: 4oz superwash BFL, by FatCatKnits
yds: ~ 215 yds thick and thin, 12 WPI
Darfted fiber looks great, don't you think?
