Saturday I was lucky enough to take not one but two totally fun classes with Betty Burian Kirk – designer yarns 1 and 2. When I pulled into the parking lot and was getting my wheel and stuff out, another lady pulled in and was getting her wheel out. So, I struck up a conversation and made a new friend that I hung out with all day. Hi Anne!!! Anne’s into classes too, so hopefully we’ll run into each other again.
Some of the yarns were easy because I’ve done them before, so here’s the couple easy ones I did first.
Now the Core yarn that was a bit more difficult and I want to try again. You have to wrap the roving around a core yarn and in this case it was a thread.
Then I plyed with a contrasting yarn. I think I could do it better trying again. This was a hard one.
While I loved all of yarn, I had a few real favorites.
The Knop or knot yarn. This one I want to do again. It’s so fun and I can’t wait to spin up something fun and knit it.
The Boucle yarn another must do for a project.
The Cabled yarn, which is said to make an awesome sock. I can’t wait to try this one again. I need to get my dye pot out.
The design possibilities are making my head swirl. Tomorrow lace weight yarns.
