Once I really got the hang of spinning, I wanted to spin everything. In my effort to spin as many different fibres as possible, I bought a wide variety to try out. Rather than buy project-sized amounts of one or two types of fibre, I’d buy an ounce or two of several different kinds. This was great for experience but lousy for creating a usable end product. I now have many skeins like the one above, or the one below, which weigh in at 2 oz. or less of worsted-plus weight. What can you do with 2 oz. of worsted weight yarn? Not much.
My advice to myself back then would now be: 1) buy larger amounts of single types of fibre, and/or 2) spin finer. I’m going to try to use up as many of these skeins as possible with a weaving project like the Spaced Out Felted Scarf. Some more advice for my students too, as much of my advice comes from being largely self-taught and having no one else’s mistakes to learn from.
