Well, I’m Finally Trying It

I got out both my Bossie Midi and my Prelude and decided to give the Icelandic a try.  It’s definitely different from the others, but I’m finding I can spin smaller singles.  There are three different colors to the Icelandic on the spindle.. The deep gray/black is what I am spinning on my Prelude.. The browns are still waiting to be washed and carded..

The grey/black is working up wonderfully on the Prelude.  The single is much easier to work into a smaller thread.  I have no idea what will be made with this thread.  It seems to have an itchiness that makes me wonder about anything touching the skin.  Perhaps a cardigan or vest that will be worn over something else.

Click on the pics and it will take you much larger pics on my Flickr site…
