This Is Working Out Great!

This is my first skein of yarn for the cardigan…just about the perfect wpi…close enough I’d think 🙂 I don’t have a weight for it as it’s still drying but it’s just under 200 metres so two more like this will be enough (as per the pattern).

I’ve learned more about how to properly spin worsted…by experience-I’ve realized that if I use my pinky finger and palm to draft, far away from the twist, I can keep the roving straight throughout without ending up with those extra ‘bumps’ of fibre! Very cool. This is probably the best I’ve spun yet! 🙂
