Sorry I'm late! I didn't have pictures last night that I could post when I wrote my post about Cowboy Mouth. So now I have pictures, and they are of the first yarn I have spun on Ford!!!
I took this:
And spun it into this:
What's that you say? It just looks like a blob of black and starry? Okay, here ya go:
It's cabled. My first successful cabled yarn! I spun the whole bobbin full and then Andean plied it onto itself once and then once more. A note to those who prefer Andean plying: a whole bobbin is a LOT of yarn to wind onto your hand. I used a chopstick as a splint to keep my finger from bending back, but it still got a little uncomfortable. Worked like a charm, though :)
And some extra pictures... the yarn room is ready for the stash! It's mostly furnished (Mom and I are looking for a table to place in the middle of the room, where the swift and ball winder will live), we just need to move the stash in. Wanna see?
It's a happy place :)
