Through thick and thin

I’ve been having yarn weight mood swings this week. Last night I spun around 100 more yards of “Black Lace” yarn. Look at it next to the “Rocker Gurl” bulky yarn.

Hard to believe I spun them both on the same wheel. As I’ve mentioned before, my wheel is designed for medium to bulky weight yarns. Because it is a small wheel, it takes more revolutions to add the twist required to hold together such a fine yarn. When I spin lace weight, I have to move my foot very fast and my hands very slow. It either requires steady, meditative patience or very distracting tv in the background.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
