I didn't have any more pictures of me spinning, but a friend did! And she sent them to me after my status update full of woe on Facebook, saying I had none (before my dad took my picture).
Recently I helped out at a Civil War event in a near by town. I volunteered to demonstrate spinning.
And of course I had to wear my period costume. I made this dress about 5 years ago, but it still gets the job done.
Other people who participate in this event, some of them have a different costume each time!
I don't because 1. I have no place to store all of those costumes and 2. I wear the dress twice every year, I don't think I need another. :)
In these pictures I'm demonstrating a Navajo Ply, also a chain ply. It's taking a single strand of yarn and turning it into a three ply yarn. It's very simple, but not all that easy.
I really like it though, because it produces a nice, even yarn, and it's great for creating an evenly variegated yarn. Make sense?
