The night before I left on my trip to Shetland I took a spin-for-color-class taught by Doreen of Goldfish Love. I grabbed the bag of colors from the Kerry Woolen Mill, Louie, and learned about spinning Noro-style yarn. It was such fun. I actually liked the mistake skein better than my second skein. In my excitement I pulled a color out of order when I was spinning. A happy accident. There are many possibilities with this spinning technique!
|Naturally I had to choose six colors!|
|This is how the single looks on the bobbin.|
|The bottom skein is the one with the "mistake" and the top skein is my second and successful skein. They are both two-ply yarns.|
|The more the colors are carded, the more subtle the color gradation.|
