Today was a brighter day for me! I was able to spin, not only for Spinzilla but also for my Master Spinning course so I completed two tasks in one. One of my most important goals for spinning in Spinzilla was to work on my consistency and balance, both of which I have been struggling with in my spinning. I was hoping that simply spinning without the pressure of having to do it perfectly for grading would help me to find that place of balance and, after day 3, I can say, I think it is working.
All of my yarn seems to be far better balanced. Coming off the bobbin it has a slight twist but with a quick soak in hot water and hanging it to dry, with no weighting, it is laying as a nice open circle. I have been struggling over twist but I think the intense spinning during Spinzilla is helping me to find that balance and consistency.
|Llanwenog, fresh off the hills of Wales and shipped to my living room! It was so fresh the lanolin was like butter!|
It spun up beautifully In The Grease and somehow was able to help heal the tenderness of my fingertips!
Tomorrow I am excited to start a Christmas project of bright jeweled colors. I can't wait to dig into that one!!!
