I learned alot spinning this first batch.
Here is my second attempt.
It's much better. I have learned that I am able to draft from a fold much more easily. The inchworm draft just wasn't working for me, even though I was going slow and using the park and draft method. Now, drafting from the fold, I can stand and spin and I seem to be able to get a nice even draw from the fibre. I'll get it eventually, I suppose, with practice. I can't wait to get a wheel!
For those of you curious and didn't see my comment in the last post, I'm considering an Ashford Traveller for my first wheel. It's compact [I need compact!], it's versatile [I'll want to spin lighter weight yarns, particularly lace, fingering and sport.] and it's pretty. Also notice I said, "my first wheel." I know what I'm in for.
Well, I guess I should do some knitting...the trouble is that this damn spindle whispers to me and tells me to spin instead.
Keep On Knitting...
