Where did you get your corrie? I've tried corrie (and BFL) from various sources and most times the corrie wins hands down. I like spinning a yarn that blooms after spinning and the corrie does that.
MSWF ... sigh ... maybe some day, then again maybe someday I'll make it to SOAR too!!
Can't wait to see your yarns!.
I move the wheel too, the correct height helps stop back pain. Having your feet flat and thighs parallel with the floor makes sitting with correct posture easier.
And I was wrong about the fiber I have, I remembered it wrong... it's Coopworth... I remember reading that now but was mistaken when I was posting
I have my twist between 10 and 12 per inch... I've tried the long draw and I like it better than predrafting... but predrafting did help me learn when the right amount of twist looks like.
I have one spool full and I'm hoping to get the second one filled today. Do I have to wait to ply it? Does the yarn need to sit on the spool first?
I'll post pics when I'm done. Thanks for all the help and support. I'm loving spinning.
