I’ve been having fun playing with the wool top that I bought from Jamieson and Smith and I’ve spun up a few skeins worth – very small skeins worth, lol. This stuff is fantastic and just glides along so it’s possible to get some even singles out of it even for a beginner like me.
Here are some photos:
Single ply before washing and plying.
Unwinding setup. It didn’t work that well so I made a ball of the two plys but I didn’t like that either so now I just take the toilet paper roll and join the two ends and ply that at the same time.
1st and 2nd skeins. The second skein is thinner spun.
My first true skein with J&S.
Second skein washed.
J&S natural black, actually so dark brown it looks black.
J&S grey top on spindle.
Plied grey J&S skein before washing.
Grey skein after drying. The yarn shrinks a bit and gets crumply/springy.
Starting to soak.
Shrinking in hot water.
Charlie needs a new winter hat so grandma had to try her hand at knitting one so here it is. Hopefully it will fit.
Random worsted weight yarn knit with various 4.5 mm needles.
