Last night I finished spinning/plying 86 yards of bulky merino double with pre-carded wool I got at Rhinebeck (I forgot to take a pic last night). I've heard that once you start spinning nice, thin wool, it's hard to go back to bulky, uneven stuff, so I had to try for bulky early. It was pretty difficult to draft the wool on in big chunks, more difficult than letting the wheel spin and pull. Oh well, it's all learning at this point. Basically everything I'm doing here is for the first time. Just gotta try to do it, even if things don't turn out right.
Here's what I want to do with that yarn. The SCARF, silly! Minds out of the gutter! (From here: http://www.yarnballboogie.com/?p=124) Later this week I'm going to a 'spinny' where I've been promised that someone will teach me how to knit. I hope this project is simple enough for a starter!
