A Hand-pulled Roving Experience

In September 2014, I received this fibre in the Sweet Georgia Yarns’ fibre club, which was new to me at the time. I had just joined and thus far, had had good results from my spun club fibres.

This Spinning Socks Six Pack in Panda (60% superwash merino, 30% bamboo rayon, 10% nylon) from Sweet Georgia Yarns has been sitting in my stash since October 2014. That is almost two years ago because I received it as part of spinning with Team Sweet Georgia in Spinzilla that year! I’m not a big stasher,… Continue reading little effort.

on a roll …

I seem to be on a proverbial roll over here with singles yarn. I spun a third skein of singles after receiving an extra slow whorl for my Jumbo flyer, which I had ordered a few weeks ago.

calling all the singles!

I may never spin any yarn, ever again. Any yarn, that is, except singles. Oh, and maybe corespun. But not any other yarns ever again. Singles only from now on! I have to confide something to you. I actually wanted to learn to spin back in 2008 because I wanted to be able to spin… Continue reading calling all the singles!
