Hi Folks! My name is Freddi Dunleavey and I raise alpacas up here in the Catskill Mountains in New York! I am also a novice (3 years) spinner and it's wonderful having fiber from my own animals to spin, crochet and knit!
My friend Victoria (Victoise) told me about this site and I'm interested in learning different aspects of spinning and knitting from all of you.
I have been concentrating on learning how to get my yarn as fine as possible and have had some fair success.
How do you, as spinners, feel about using the nubby, slubby style of yarn? I'm also a novice knitter (real novice...I'm on my third scarf!
) and wonder if the differing thickness will make it difficult to knit?
This is my first post and I hope to hear from you soon! Now I'm off to see if I can find an easy pattern for my first knitted hat! :XX:
