I know. I’ve been doing that for a good while now. Lots and lots of yarn. Why just last term I made all this
That would be the 1800+ yards I dyed and spun for my NEWT. The idea there was that I’d dye and spin the solar system so each yarn represents one of the planets and I tried a few different new to me ply structures- the red, for example, is a cable. Another one I did an opposing ply for extra bounce and supposed durability. And I can’t remember what else I did anymore cuz I’ve slept since then. But overall I spun well over 4000 yards total in singles and had a blast. But that’s not really the point of the title.
That’s more that I’ve discovered I can make actual knit-able yarn with a drop spindle! Probably this shouldn’t be noteworthy or even exciting, but somehow it is. Because my first days of drop spindling produced a lot of wonky but not a lot of knit-worthy end product. But now. Now I can make yarn. On a drop spindle! And I can do so with relative efficiency! This bitty little skein
Is 45 yards of 2 ply off of my Turkish. Spun entirely over family conversation after Easter dinner. Fascinated the family, kept my hands busy so I could also participate in the conversation and looks surprisingly Eastery, don’t you think? And is consistent enough to add into my EBI when I get ’round to growing it. There are other examples, too, but I gotta be honest, I’m just too dern lazy at the moment to take a picture so you’ll have to take my word for it.
