Handspun Friday - FCK Greek Myths - Persephone
I'm waiting for the fourth, and last installment of FatCatKnits fiber club, whith the theme "Greek Myths". Meanwhile I've spun up "Persephone". Here's Ginny's interpretation : Rechoice & Despair, 5oz each, 85% Polwarth 15% Tussah Silk.
I hand carded 4oz of each colorway, and made these rolags.
Rechoice: chain plied, ~ 177yds
Despair: chain plied, ~ 172yds
Then I wanted to do another experiment, and spun the last ounce of each colorway, and made 2-ply, which I wanted to chain ply as last step, but I spun it in the wrong direction, and that's what I've got. A big mess.
I think it would have looked lovely as finished yarn. I think it was also the first time I've spun yarn in the wrong direction. Boy did I feel like a fool!
