.::Shocked and Stunned::. ..seriously!!!!!

I started spinning some superwash BFL just now, to make a 3 ply sock yarn for my Mum.....and am currently spinning 34+ wraps per inch.....how did that happen????
I'm spinning on my travelling wheel, Lily, not on Louie....it'd kill me to try and spin that fine on him, as he pulls like crazy and snaps the single when you get too fine......
She's a dream of a wheel....and I loves her :D

That is some serious spinning you've done there! It's brilliant! I'm sure it will make the prefect sock yarn.

That is neat spinning and I love your WPI tool.. what wheel is Lily and Louie? I can spin fine on my louet.. with the fast flyer.. not done a WPI on a single.. will have to do that and see what mine are.

you spin superfine because you are superfine.
and maybe because you weren't drinking cider at the same time?
