Show and tell us what you are spinning in 2023.
I have been working on my medium thick worsted spinning. It is 3 ply and came out more bulky at ~4 st \1”. I am happy, though with the softness. Here are two swatches before and after being washed and dried. I am taking good notes on cards, especially the ratios.
This is spun on my Ladybug, Slow whorl, smaller notch.
This is also on my Ladybug, Slow wh, larger notch
I’m learning that my yarn gets tighter as I knit. I read somewhere that if I put the ball farther away, it might abate some of that.
Should I experiment with spinning S singles and plying Z?
I saw a cool handspun project on YT (Amy King). She calls it a duo spin. Not sure if this is the same thing as a combo spin. She takes two braids, one a gradient, one a neutral or semisolid and makes separate bobbins of each ( or two of each if for socks to sorta match). Then plies them together. Kinda cool.
