Notes for Episode

WestCoast Colour BFL+Silk – 100gr

(Ravelry Project Page here)

  • Lendrum Saxony 18:1, double drive
  • spun half without pre-drafting or attenuating, striped and attenuating for 2nd half
  • AShford eSpinner 3 – perfect for a quick ply
  • plied from centre-pull ball

Pressed Flowers Cardigan – Amy Christoffers

(Ravelry Project Page)

  • pick up on sleeves challenging – difficult to get correct number of stitches
  • need enough for the stitch repeat
  • ended up with one full repeat short in the drop shoulder, where the sleeves start 
  • (?) too small

WestCoast Colour ‘Toothy’

(Ravelry Project Page here)

  • Majacraft Rose, 27:1
  • spinning continuous backwards, smoothing lightly, allowing texture to go through
  • keeping distance of draft
  • definitely toothy

Kainuu Harmaas

(Ravelry Project Page)

  • continuous backwards with gentle smoothing
  • lock pop → drumcarding with 4 passes → carding up small nest and pre-attenuating from there
