I did say that the handspun is my "first handspun of any consequence".
Moe can attest to the fact that the Turkish Spindle which I sold to her did indeed have Steph-spun stuff resembling yarn. It was made with "practice fibre" from Gaspereau Valley Fibres. The content of the practice fibre is entirely unknown. The practice fibre is also 7 different kinds of awful.
This is the first "content known" fibre I have spun. There are bits that don't show up in the photo which are:
- too thick
- too thin
They just don't show up in the photo. By the time I got to the stuff on the spindle, I had figured out that "pre-drafting" the entire length of roving was the best way to go for me.
In other news: I'm not at work today. Family stuff going on. If you're the praying kind, please send up a few "Steph's family needs some TLC" prayers. Becca, if you read this, please give me a call on my cell.
