Last week I was in the middle of some turquoise spinning and I had a bobbin full of an Into the Whirled Falkland batt. Although the turquoise spinning has seen very little progress, I n-plied, washed, and wound the batt. The colourway is “Just Figs”. I got a little under 700 yards in 136 grams, which I’m thrilled about.
Originally, it was like this:
Here it is all wiggly before washing:
And here it is all nice on the niddy noddy:
And when I wound it into a ball, you could see how lovely it really looked:
Note that these pictures all make it look pretty good. The burgundy was towards the end of the night when I probably should have stopped plying and finished the next day. There are little bits where one of the plies got away from me & it’ll be interesting to knit that up and see if it’s fixable, but on the whole it was a successful venture.
