Monday Monday!!!


This is some Shepherd's Corner Merino Endicott that I purchased at SAFF last fall. It's a beautiful deep
purple with some blue & raspberry hues in it.

I don't know if I'm making sufficient progress or not with the spinning???

I do know that it's great meditation & before you know it an hour has passed & it feels like you just sat down.


I had to make mini skeins. My yarn kept breaking while winding it on the niddy noddy, cause I spun it so thin.

Hey Cray for Yarn....... it is double plyed!!! I guess that means I did have enough twist???

I think it looks pretty! Besides, we're decent knitters. We know how to weave in a few ends. :-)

So pretty! Yes, if it's plied and still breaking while you're winding on, you may want to take the tension waaaay down on your wheel so it'll wind on easier, or put more twist in it when you ply. Is the yarn breaking or are the fibers coming apart? If the former, back off on the tension, if the latter, add more twist! :o)
