Here's a skein of yarn I've made that I'm pleased with:
I started off with this top (which I think Lucy - who dyed it - and I decided was probably Falkland):
I divided it into three and spun each third into a single:
And then I plyed it into just over 150m of a worsted/aran-weight yarn.
It will probably become a hat, a scarf or a pair of mittens.
This one I'm not pleased with (I haven't even taken it off the niddy noddy to wash):
I started off with this merino/silk blend from World of Wool (it's called Gemini).
I originally spun the whole 100g bump into a single:
So, I wound the blueish single into a centre pull ball on my ball winder and then made a 2ply yarn.
If I've counted the turns on the niddy noddy correctly, it's 264 metres and a heavy fingering weight yarn. Probably enough for a pair of socks.
The red? Well, I've spun the 100g bump I had into this single:
I'm now going to concentrate on my knitting WIPs for the next few days as I've got a sweater and two pairs of socks on the go and could do with getting them finished.
Have a good weekend, even if the weather in the UK has got a bit pants again.
