yea to 4 day weekends!
the other night i went by far north fibers and bought more ‘supplies’ – and it took all of my will power to not buy fiber!
and i succeeded.
the niddy noddy (1.5 yard setting):
i don’t have to wrap my spun yarn around a chair anymore! the niddy noddy telescopes to make 1.5 and 2 yard hanks.
is it just me, or does it look like a bike pump?
you add different fibers (colors, types, etc) to a card (they come in pairs), brush , then transfer the fiber from card to card until the fibers are blended to your taste. you get puffy, soft ‘clouds’ that are easy to draft and spin.
i am spinning a brown wool yarn of the same width and will make a 2 ply tomorrow – if the test ply looks okay.
check back tomorrow!
