I’ve been practicing with my drop spindle this week and it’s frustrating me.
I still haven’t got the hang of it. I’m pretty sure my technique is terrible because every time I try and draft the drop spindle spins the opposite way to the way it was.
But I have plied some commercial yarns together.
That was quite fun.
I plied a white dk weight, a grey sock weight, and a multi coloured fingering weight together.
The end result was very cool. It looks a lot better than my efforts with merino fleece.
