Fiber Friday: Spin all the Things
First, I spun the braid of Merino/Bamboo I bought from October House at Ply Away last month. I did a fractal single which I then chain plied, and I don't know that I would chain ply another Merino/Bamboo single again. The resulting yarn is a little funky in places, and some of the fuzz would collect in a pill as I plied, which was a little annoying. This would have been much better suited to a two-ply - but live and learn, I guess!
Essential Fiber at YarnCon, which was also last month. Opening the first batt was pretty exciting, it was like it went on for days!
