This has taken a while (and I still haven’t finished off the dusky pink singles I was spinning before this, no).
It started life as this BFL –
In attempt to create something other than laceweight, I decided to have a go at my first 3ply.
By which point I was aware that it was still rather fine…
…and no, the plying didn’t save me.
30ish grams, 227 yards, 30 WPI. Doh.
I’m persisting though, and trying upping the amount of predrafting I do. I divided the other roving I dyed up for the dyealong into 3 balls, and have divided up each of those into 3 pieces.
So far it’s looking thicker. It’s certainly progressing light-years faster.
I’ve still not much idea what weight this single will become as a 3ply yarn though – I need to print out the spinner’s control card a kind soul on the UK Spinner’s list on ravelry has made, I think.
