Shawl Trim & Mitten Yarn


Dark Lincoln

I’ve spun and plied the last of the Lincoln wool for the mittens I want to make. This is a photo of that yarn and the lovely ‘Autumn Sunset’ trim for my shawl project.

The trim yarn is ‘chain plied’ or ‘Navaho plied’ where one bobin of yarn is 3-plied on the fly.

It didn’t go so good – I got my fingers tangled in the yarn. How dumb is that?

Next time, I’m using my own wheel. I’ve oiled it until it moves smoothly and in total silence. I think I might get a small can of oil for the wheels we use in class. They all seem to stick.
