So what have I done this weekend?

I played a little World of Warcraft, but I don't think that interests anyone here but me, so I won't expand on that.

I didn't spin much, about half a bobbin last night. I did sell some yarn over on etsy... the thinmints yarn. Hooray! The last stuff I've spun was bright yellow. I had realized that after making Terracotta, the worsted weight one, I was having trouble making a bulky yarn, so I decided to make a bulky, slubby, thick & thin yarn just for the hell of it, so I did.

Ragnar mentioned possibly doing her first lace. Well, I've been doing just that.. sort of. Once, a few months ago, I made a lace panel bag with bulky Manos del Uruguay, but it never got finished because the strap was a pain in my arse, and I don't like sewing linings into bags. A couple of days ago, I cast on for Branching Out using my Terracotta yarn. I've gotten four repeats so far, with no problems. *knocks on wood* Yarn Pirate, if she's reading this, may remember months ago when I attempted this scarf and had even purchased a pattern for a much more complicated lace scarf. I couldn't get one friggin' repeat, and I threw in the towel, and sent her my copy of that purchased pattern. Luckily, it seems to be going much better this time. We'll see.

So what is the secret to spinning bulky slubby yarn. I know it's the typical spinner thing to say buy I can't do it anymore! Sometimes I want to spin something that isn't approximately the same gauge as sewing thread.

I am so envious of the amount of spinning you get done!!

Must make a day a week or something then I might at least sit at my wheel!

Lovely yarn, what is this one going to be or are you going to sell it?

Spin on >^..^<
