The last blog post of NaBloPoMo couldn't get better than spinner's show and tell, followed by audience participation. I've worked furiously all month to reach this point. (It is happy coincidence that everything came together today.)
I have two skeinlets to show you. Each was spun using a short forward worsted draw. The two skeins were spun from the last part of the Border Leicester roving. That means that the example given is the most practiced portion of my right handed spinning.
Each skein was sized by the same number of ballwinder turns off the bobbin. They were each double plyed from a centerpull ball.
Our contestants are being called Skein #1 and Skein #2 to disguise their identities. You will see a close shot of each, then a skein view in the poll that follows.
Tomorrow, I will reveal the identities of our contestants, unblind the results of the polls, and discuss why this is probably the least fair election in recent blog history.
So here is the poll. Which skein do you like best?
