It took me all weekend to spin one skein of yarn. There’s no way to say this without it sounding stupid: I knew my fingers were important, I just didn’t realize how important. They are all doing a different and important job while I spin, and trying to work with the one in a brace was like learning how to spin all over again.
The end result isn’t TOO bad. I’m hoping most people won’t see the inconsistencies I see. Or at least, they’ll be kind enough to pretend they don’t see them.
Can you tell which of those skeins I spun with my gimpy finger?
No, not really. They all look fine to me. I am still working on the consistency of my own skeins, even with 10 good fingers. I hope your finger is mending nicely?
I think it’s on the mend. It’s still ouchy, but only when I try to use it, instead of all the time.
Consistency is SO hard, especially if time passes between skeins of yarn. I keep what I’m trying to match in my lap, so I can glance down at it, but I don’t always remember to check.
