Back in October I was at an antique store and was inspired to make a lemon yellow and robin egg blue yarn from some enamel pots.
I made some beautiful rolags from merino, tussah silk, and some wool locks.
It was the first time that I
used my blending board
correctly! I didn’t research
how to use the blending
board before I used it earlier
this year, so I didn’t know that
I’m supposed to draft the
rolags while I’m rolling them off.
The rolags were fun to spin. The locks were beautiful when spun. Here are the 2 bobbins before they are plied together.
I spun the yellow single a little thicker than the blue, so the effect is that when I plied, the thinner blue single is wrapped slightly around the yellow single.
