See those three beautiful bumps of fiber, that's it.
Spinning samples and using Nancy's Spinning Kards
I really like these cards, They give me a compact way to organize information about the yarn.
Measuring my angle of twist. I wanted a dk weight with a greater than 30 degree angle and got it with this two ply. It is 16 wraps per inch.
I spun 23 grams of fiber and got 64 yards.
I knitted a large swatch on size 7 needles. My swatch is usually quite dinky but I really need for this to drape well so needed a larger swatch. The swatch was washed and pinned out on a blocking square.
Measuring for gauge. I got 20 stitches in stockinette switch.
Which is just what this pattern requires.
