thick and thin
After seeing Marian’s scarf I couldn’t wait to try spinning thick and thin. With the help of books and YouTube – this is the result. Not such a nice color, but I am pleased. I worried the yarn would be overtwisted, but after washing the yarn and drying the knitted piece is straight, doesn’t curl or go to one side as might be the case when knitted with overspun.
First I spun a good lenght varying thick and thin often, then I thought to push it a bit to an extreme and spun more thin and thick only here and there. The result is a loosely knitted somewhat lacy fabric with highly textured spots. Hope to explore this more.
