Yarn for Benjy Scarf

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am so new to spinning, but these two skeins begin to feel and look like yarn. I do also like my fat and bumpy first attempts, but with these, I have something more workable. They are not 100% consistent in diameter, a few kinks, but I still love them. I had fun with the dying, though the pink was an error, I only wanted blue... in the end, I love it the way it is. The yarn is very tender. First shearing for both sheep. I'm surprised how delicate if feels. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time with spinning. Practice "quality control" with your fingers and eyes, trying to maintain the diameter of the yarn. Practice "feeling" the amount of spin you have, and check for correct spin frequently. There will be plenty of time for lumpy bouclee yarn... in fact you could go back and forth.
