My First Yarn

Oh God, so funny.

My first yarn. I was trying to draft it at the same time that I was spinning it, which went about as well as pickles in peanut butter. I was also worried about over spinning it, so I under spun it and all of the twist relaxed out while it was soaking in hot water. The result, as you can see, is comical.

I made about 37 yards for my first batch, and there’s a steady progression of improvement over the course of the strand. I cut off this bit as being unusable, and the rest in going to be dyed once I get more white vinegar.
