An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
I've spun about a third of the yarn I'll need for Jack's pullover. This is seven skeins and I'll need about 20. How do I know? Experience. But it's important to have consistent skeins. I almost always make my skeins 50 times round the niddy noddy, whatever the thickness of the yarn. That enables me to compare skeins with each other and to estimate how much I'll need for a project.
