Spent the last week trying to upload photos and I still don't know WTF. It was supposed to be pictures of spinning.
Well, right there above us is a sample I made for my students (!). Chain/navajo ply on the right, true three ply on the left. Everyone always wants to know the difference and it's usually pretty obvious when you put them both together; these were spun from two halves of a single braid, so the colors themselves were exactly the same.
Yep, that's right, students! The big news (in fiber, at my house, anyway) for the last year is, I'm now a spinning instructor at Natural Stitches in Pittsburgh. It's been fun, and my students are learning, so we're all happy with each other.
However, being a teacher? I feel like something of a fraud, because for instance, that true three ply up there in that picture? Only one I've ever done. I know how a lot of this stuff works, mechanically, but have never done it. So lately, I've been trying to fix that.
Here's a cable ply.
This is some swap yarn I need to get off my ass and mail. Not my preferred colors, but it turned out okay.
I even know what I want to do with this yarn. It's just a matter of finishing sixty other things first. As usual.
Right, finally got the spinning photos to show up. Maybe tomorrow I can mess around with something new.
