Know Your Wool »
Type of item: Functional
What was your inspiration?
I had been struggling with the best preparation of a fleece I purchased at a local fair. After taking Deborah's class, I knew that I just need to experiment and try out each prep and swatch. Now I know exactly how to prep the rest of the fleece to get the yarn I want.
What are you most proud of?
That I actually sat down and swatched (and that they turned out square). By swatching, the characteristics of each yarn were amplified and I was better able to see the differences in detail.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't sweat the details with swatching - just dive in - you can adjust later.
