This picture shows a skein and a mini skein. They are from the same fiber. The same singles. One was plyed for the 2014 Kentucky State Fair, and the mini was done just this past week. I hadn’t spun anything in between these two, but apparently time does make a huge difference.
I wasn’t intending for them to turn out differently. I just started plying again so I could say I was spinning again. (Tasha was feeling a little neglected.)
I still have another braid of this fiber, and I’ve already begun spinning those singles. Lets hope this one comes out similar to at least one of these skeins.
PS: For those who are curious, I did alter the larger skein a bit since the State Fair, and I’m much more pleased with it now. Its still a little kinky in some spots, but I no longer have to worry about it bringing out the silk ties and riding crop.
