Saturday AM: Mission SpinPossible — Lofty Singles with Michael Kelson
Instructor: Michael Kelson
Ever wondered how yarn manufacturers get those stable, balanced, bulky singles that everyone loves to knit with? Here’s the secret: those yarns are often not really singles. Using a low-twist 2-into-1 technique you can get a stable, balanced yarn that looks and behaves like a singles yarn.
This session will discuss spinning and plying 2-into-1 singles; how to add loft to your singles by spinning from fauxlags or from the fold; and how to ply and finish your yarn for that perfect, lofty, soft and fun knitting yarn.
Skill Level: Successful students will have a good working relationship with their spinning wheels, be able to spin a consistent single, and have some experience plying and finishing yarn.
