So, despite the fact that I didn’t get home ’til 10 last night, I couldn’t wait any longer to wind off and set the twist on the fresh batch of two-ply. It wound up being about 64 yards, and it’s a lot heavier than the first skein (on the heavy side of fingering to maybe even sport, rather than lace-to-fingering). When I took these pictures this morning, it was early enough that there was only a little slice of sunlight in my living room–a rarity for me.

pretty well balanced, no?

kinda like a waterfall

all nicely twisted

So, I’ve been trying to figure out why the mohair-wool from this blob seems so nice when it’s on the spindle and then gets lots of wonky-looking kinked bits once I’ve set the twist. Any ideas from you veteran spinners?
