It’s been a while since I posted a finished object on Finished Object Friday, so I’m pretty happy to have something to post today.
I already told yinz about the fractal spin challenge I participated in on the Schacht Spinners group on Ravelry in a previous blog post.
Here are the final results.
My finished yarn is over 1300 yards in 115 grams, which is very fine lace weight. Overall, I’m very pleased with this spin. If I could do one thing over again, I would have started spinning the singles from the dark pink end instead of the green end so that when I started plying, I would have started with a solid green stripe. But all in all, this fractal spin was a rousing success.
Absolutely gorgeous! I didn’t participate in the SAL, but read the group posts and learned so much. It’s time for me to get back to my spinning.
Thanks, Janet. I really enjoy all the support and inspiration I get from other spinners.
That must have taken ages! It’s so pretty. I love playing with fractal spinning.
Thanks, caityrosey. I agree that fractal spinning is fun to play around with, and even when the yarn doesn’t turn out quite they way you had imagined, it still looks great. It’s difficult to mess up a fractal spin.
It really didn’t take all that long. I started on April 9 and the hank was soaking on April 27, so it was less than 3 weeks. But if I’m going to make a habit of spinning 1300+ yards of 2-ply from 4 ounces of fiber, maybe I should think about getting a 30-inch spinning wheel. If only I had room for a wheel that big.
