More fun with the Lendrum


Superwash Merino Roving
Glass Underworld from Aija at Sock Pr0n, zeromarkers etsy store



250 yds 3 ply (Navajo) handspun

My previous attempt at Navajo plying was not successful--the singles had too much twist and the yarn was plied too tightly. This time I spun singles that were more relaxed and I chose a larger whorl to ply more loosely. The twist isn't as consistent as I would have liked, but maybe it'll look a little better after it's set.

Isn't it amazing how different the colors look in the roving vs. the yarn? I think the muted colors are very pretty and blend well together. Spinning is a real adventure.

  • I love how roving changes characteristics as you spin. Yours was practically raucous to start, and now it's so much more subtle. And beautiful. I stayed up WAY too late last night because I couldn't stop watching the pretty colors flowing through my fingers!
