Second Plyed Yarn

My second attempt at spinning and plying has yielded better results than the first. This 2-ply yarn is a bit smoother than the blue one I made before. I love the colour. Sadly, it is still too thick for lace, but I am getting there.

Since I have some old inaccurate kitchen scales, I don't actually know how much yarn this is, so planning to make anything with it is difficult. I will probably try a cowl and use the blue yarn to make a wrist distaff (yeah, I had to look that word up too). Just like with spinning, Helen got me interested in making my own distaff. She is a dangerous person to be around!

  1. I had to look that word up as well but the German translation (Spinnrocken, Wocken) does not help me either. ;)
