And for one of my biggest questions...how much yarn do I need to spin (or even buy for that matter) for a project...Nancy has an awesome, although mathematical, way to figure that out if you're willing to....ummm...do a swatch (yeah, I rarely do those, but maybe I'll change my mind for some projects).
We talked about different spinning techniques and what type of yarn they produce and what types of yarn are good for different types of projects. I even managed to spin a decent woolen yarn! (Which probably means nothing to you if you're not a spinner, but trust me, I was VERY happy)
|See my pretty, fluffy, woolen spun yarn?|
Many thanks to Nancy for a great day and also to her canine helpers Ripley and Clay for my doggie fix for the week.
