Spinning 8 oz of superwash merino at a fine weight takes longer than I thought it would. I had weighed out the balls so that I knew I had equal amounts to ply with....however, once the first bobbin was filled, I became impatient. I wanted to ply now!!
Grabbing my ballwinder, I wound off the 4 ounces that I had spun on the bobbin. As that center wound ball grew and grew, I got more and more nervous. Crap....I am probably going to end up with a tangled mess! Why did I do this, said thee to thyself? Impatient.....I'm just plain old impatient I was praying that this impatience was not going to land me with 4 ounces of wasted spinning.
As lady luck would have it though, I managed to ply all of the yarn without one snag. The snag came in the washing....sigh. Silly me, I only tied the yarn in one spot and unfortunately that tie did not hold up well when the yarn was soaking.
Can you guess what I will be doing this afternoon?
