sorry about all the spinning talk over here! i also apologize that there will continue to be more…
but to appease you all, i have been knitting.
and if you’ve been thinking what all this spinning stuff has to do with you… i suggest buying the ‘Knitter’s Book of Yarn’ by Clara Parkes. you won’t be disappointed. great patterns and fabulous information for knitters about what yarns to choose and why.
fun fact: did you know that knitter’s untwist their yarn while they knit? that means that a yarn spun Z (on my wheel clockwise) and plied S (you always ply in the opposite direction that you spin) is best for knitting. the opposite is best for crochet. if we want to get all technical… 1/2 a twist over-ply will compensate for our untwist. CRAZY.
