I made some yarn, y’all. It feels like a big deal because I haven’t had a lot of time at the wheel lately. This is only the second skein of yarn I’ve made since the beginning of the year. It started out like this:
I’d never spun Southdown before, and I liked it!
I spun it up into 332 yards of light worsted chain-ply, slated for socks for one of my kiddos. One of these days.
I split the fiber to yield short repeats of the color changes, and the yarn turned out pretty much exactly as I’d hoped.
