Slimming Down

Take a look at the singles I finished spinning up last night -- I'm getting better at going thin!


This is 2 oz. of merino/corriedale I bought the weekend the wheel first came (or maybe it was the weekend right after I ordered it), and this is all of it. I was goign to try Navajo plying, but with such a small amount, I want to maximize the finished yarn I have, so I may just make a center-pull ball and ply from both ends.

Something tells me I will want to stick with a technique I already know, as I'm planning on spinning while watching this movie. I've heard the sauna scene is a tad bit distracting.

I really think you're a natural at spinning!

Are there sparks coming out of your wheel from the friction caused by you spinning so quickly. Good heavens woman, you're quick! Those singles look perfect!

Wow, the spinning looks great! So even!

And yes, I'll want a FULL report on Viggo after the movie (especially how he looks in that sauna scene).
