Quick update tonight. I finished spindling 2 ounces of the alpaca on Wednesday night at the former JJJ now Nu Cafe. So great to see some of my peeps again!! And I missed those who weren’t there. Using my Bossie midi, I started spinning my Loop batt.
Total love; very fun spin so far. Today I got out Charlotte (say hi to Charlotte):
and started spinning the remainder of the alpaca. Because of some problems with how the fiber was drafting, I decided to try a slightly different technique based on this blog post about creating rolags from combed top. It seemed to make the spinning a bit easier and I admit I love the way rolags look, especially all lined up. I’ll try to get a picture tomorrow of the ones that are remaining.
