I’m really not sure whether this counts as a finished object, but since it is as close as I can come to a finished object today, I’m going to say, Yes! It’s a finished object! After all, this is my blog, and I’m the boss of my blog. 🙂
So, here’s my finished object–a bobbin full of Blue and Green Merino/mohair blend fiber from Wolf Creek Wools.
As you can see from the picture, I have another hank of the fiber to spin. I’m going to start spinning it later today. My original plan was to make this yarn into a true 3-ply, because my first attempt at chain-plying on my wheel was, um, abysmal. But now that my abysmally chain-plied yarn has been washed, dried, and skeined, I’m thinking it actually looks not all that bad.
Yes, it is definitely over-plied in places. And the yarn isn’t as balanced as I would like.
But it’s not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be before I set the twist. In fact, it isn’t really all that bad, especially considering it was my first effort at chain-plying on my wheel. So now I’m thinking I’ll chain-ply the Blue and Green singles on my wheel. Once I get the tension properly adjusted, I think the results will be better than with the red singles. And it won’t hurt that the Blue and Green singles are a lot more consistent than the red ones.
Hey, I just realized something. The red mini-skein definitely counts as a finished object. LOL
