On the Wheel

As I mentioned, I have been doing a ton of spinning lately. I just looked at my goals for the year, the big goal being to knit a mile of yarn a month. This hasn’t happened and doesn’t look likely. However, if I take the spinning into consideration as well, I meet my goal. I shall be satisfied with that.

On my wheel currently is crown mountain farms superwash merino in rasta man vibration. While I typically spin crown mountain farm color ways into a three ply, this time I am going to try a Navajo ply to preserve the color changes.

  1. I love-love-love CMF Superwash. If I could only spin one fiber for the rest of ever, that’s what it would be. Here’s a comparison post between Be-Bop-A-Lula chain-plied and regular 3-plied: http://theyellowjournalist.blogspot.com/2011/09/ufo-files-be-bop-lula-yarn.html

    Then there’s my chain-plied “She’s Like A Rainbow:” http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2666/3804607987_424f7b292e.jpg
    vs. Jasmin of the Knitmore Girls’ 3-ply “She’s Like A Rainbow:” http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcanty/2212766450/lightbox/

    The differences fascinate me. I’m excited to see what yours looks like!

  2. Love these examples! I’ve done one other CMF, but really can’t justify purchasing more due to large stash!
