My new Ashford Kiwi. Wheeee!
What makes you realize you might need a hecka lot of practice before you’re actually stopped from buying yarn — after Lent* of course?
Why, its a badly spun thing of silk hankies!
I bought my wheel tonight (um, at knit night while having a glass of wine), came home, hauled some furniture, and then started spinning. After a few (horrible) tries, I actually made “yarn” using my silk hankies. Me + drafting = frenimies. Me + silk hankies = only fiber worth drafting (right now).
Shells, I think those few starter lessons might be in order. (But gosh darn that treading is SO MUCH FUN – and my calves are going to look great!)
