It's been a very long time since I've wanted such a fat yarn for any project. I really didn't think too hard about the difficulty involved in transitioning from fine to fat again-until I sat down to spin on Monday. It is so contradictory to allow so much roving from my hand into the the spinning triangle and then into the yarn.. I've spun nearly 1.5 ounces of this lovely white, Peruvian wool roving. This yarn might have to become a project for something else. There are so many places where I've gone from the thickness I want, to something much more fine. There has been a lot of eye rolling and sighing happening as I spin. The words to my students come back to me, echoing in the sound of my s-l-o-w-l-y- spinning wheel. "It will be difficult to spin thick yarn as an experienced spinner." Yeah, right..... @@
This is the lovely little hat that will sit upon my lovely little great niece's head this Winter.
I will just persist until I get it right!
