Cotton yarn

I confess - I'm going for an artistic shot here. This is three skeins of handspun cotton, the stuff from the back yard, spun on my electric spinning wheel, the SpinTech.

Here's a bit more realistic shot. The knitting needle? A size 3 dpn.


I'm purposely not measuring and getting all OCD about grist or yards per pound/ypp. I will try to sample, but I don't want to get too involved in the numbers to see what's going on.

Love the cotton. How do you like your electric spinner? Can't believe there is a wheel I don't have. :)

I LOVE the SpinTech!! It spins cotton like a hot knife through warm butter.

If I want to spin bulky wool, though, I get out the Lendrum.

Did I mention the Roketman hooked me up with a battery for the SpinTech so I'm not running off an outlet? I love that man!

That's the prettiest cotton yarn I have ever seen.
