What materials did you use? Handpainted Merino Combed Top by FatCatKnits 100% Merino

What are you most proud of? I learned a brand new technique! As you can see in my bobbins above, I spun the bobbin on the right a bit different from the one on the left. I learned how to do fractal spinning and found this technique to be quite an interesting experience. I really love the length of the color in the bobbin on the right an as you notice, theres less of a barber pole effect as in the bobbin on the left. Best part, I finally achieved over 300 yards of fingering weight yarn!
