I spent the second rest day winding yarn off the bobbins onto the niddy noddy. I still have two bobbins of plied yarn yet to wind off, but they will have to wait for another day.
Four skeins so far
Into The Whirled Yipes! Stripes! Targhee 2-ply thick and thin
Into The Whirled Talisman Targhee fractal 2-ply
Into The Whirled Gilmore’s Glorious Goods BFL/Silk chain plied
Into The Whirled Herding Cats superwash Targhee chain plied
The yarn has not been washed yet, so I don’t know the yardage or grist yet, but I’m very happy with all of them.
Today was a challenge day, and since I didn’t do any spinning yesterday because I sometimes do have a life, I challenged myself to spin a full 4 ounces of fiber today.
Here is a picture of success!
ITW Zephyr on Polwarth. This is a fractal spin done on my Flatiron in double drive. The singles are very thin and when plied together will make a fingering weight yarn, or maybe sport weight if the Polwarth poofs a lot when I wash the skein.
More plying has been accomplished.
ITW Herding Cats is currently on the Flatiron. I am chain plying it in Irish tension.
I made a 2-ply from the ITW Talisman singles on the Matchless in Irish tension. I think subsequent plying will be done in Scotch tension.
Today I plied the Yipes! Stripes! singles on my Ladybug. I got a lot of nice barber poling, just as I had hoped.
A nice 2-ply yarn. This will knit up pretty. Maybe a hat or a cowl.
I finished spinning up the ITW Yipes! Stripes! today.
The second bobbin is all done. I will ply it with the first bobbin to make a 2-ply. It will definitely be thick-and-thin because that’s the way I spun the singles.
I might ply it tomorrow. I have lots of plying to do, so I decided to do some plying after I finished Yipes!
This is Gilmore’s Glorious Good, another Into The Whirled color way, in the process of being chain plied in Irish tension on my Schacht Flatiron.
