After the last finished yarn, which was spun so thin, I wanted to give thicker spinning another try. I don't want to spin thick and thin when it's not on purpose. For some reason it worked out better than I thought it would, and it was a lot of fun to finish something so fast for a change!
The whole time I had "hat" in my mind, when I spun this. So I'm hoping to find a pattern for this yarn.
This winter I only wore two hats, one was made with my handspun, it was the warmer one, and the other one was made with Noro Kureyon, and it was very drafty. I've washed both several times in the washing machine to shrink them, because they kept getting bigger and bigger with use. It worked out really well. But still another hat would be nice. Not that I'll need it for this winter, but the next one will come for sure.
So here it is: Pond Life dyed by FatCatKnits 4oz of sw BFL
This time the yarn was no surprise. Of course spinning thicker keeps the colors more seperate, they don't look all muddled up.
This turned out to be ~ 161yds, 14 WPI (remember last time my three ply was 22 WPI!!!), 2-ply. I'm very happy with it. It's not totally spun even, there are thinner parts, but you definitely can't call it a thick and thin yarn.
I rarely have the same amount of singles on both bobbins. Same is true here. I navajo plied the rest. I like how it looks that way too.
So, back to the spinning wheel. So much fiber is a-waiting! New Fiber Club fibers are coming in too!
