My yarn challenge in the month of March was to spin knob yarn, which I thought was fairly easy. This assumption turned out to be wrong, and I have spent a very long time to produce a yarn that I'm happy with, but like everything in life, it comes with practice and the will to want.
Garnet laves af to tråde, jeg har brugt en naturfarvet merino / silke og en håndfarvet Bluefaced Leister (BFL).
Tråden skal snoes rigtig meget, for ikke at gå fra hinanden, når knopperne laves i tvinningen, så jeg måtte have begge spoler igennem rokken en gang mere, hvilket var lidt grænseoverskridende, da de enkelte tråde var meget overspundne. Heldigvis er det færdige garn regelmæssigt og fint afbalanceret, så næste gang kommer der rigtig meget sno på 1. gang fiberen går igennem piben.
The singels must be twisted very much, not to fall apart when the knots are made in the plying, so I had to have both bobbins through the spinning wheel once more, which was a bit transboundary when the individual singels were very overspun. Fortunately, the finished yarn is regularly and well balanced, so next time I will let lots of twist in the singels.
