She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands. --Proverbs 31:13


THis is what I did today. I have had a bag of wool in my closet for well over a year. I was at a complete loss as to how to turn it into yarn. I couldn't tell if the wool had been processed at all, it had a lot of clumps and stuff in it. It didn't smell at all though. So today I took a bunch of the cleanest looking stuff and washed it. I let it dry, carded it out, and then spun two singles, which I plyed together to get this. Pretty ugly, huh? Oh well, not bad for a first try, I guess. I'm not really happy with this, but it was cool to see the super twisty singles lay flat after the plying. It was fun to see the wisps of wool turn into yarn. All in all, a pretty stisfying adventure.
