And We're Off...

I started spinning the blue Merino/Silk top yesterday. Got it started with S twist with no problem (especially since I had so much trouble the other day) and I'm checking the wpi pretty frequently right now. I'm spinning the singles at 40 wpi but I have to be careful not to spin finer than that or the finished yarn might be too fine. You can see the shine from the silk on the yarn on the bobbin, but if you look at the ball of top that's sitting on the wheel's table below the bobbin, you can really see all the different colors that are in this top.

I would also like to mention now that since this will take a while to get all spun up (followed by the same thing in white), I will not bore you all to tears, but will only post updates on the Rosemarkie spinning once a week or less. I will be showing whatever smaller projects I'm spinning on the Majacraft, so there will still be spinning here.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you Monday and tell you all about the changes I've made in the Vine Lace Cardi.
