Spinning Stupendous Singles
Amy King

Spinning Stupendous Singles with Amy King of Spunky Eclectic.

Learn how to make better singles (thin, energized, worsted, bulky, even thick/thin), how to tell if you're going about it right, how to perfect them and how to finish them off.  This is a fun class and some things may be more surprising if you've never made singles yarns. At the end of class, if time allows, we'll go over how to use the singles in garments to get predictable results.

Please bring: Materials Fee: $35, payable to the instructor; a wheel in good working order with 3 or more bobbins. If you have a wheel that has extra whorls, bring them.  It's also helpful to have a Niddy Noddy and a Lazy Kate. You must have a good working knowledge of the wheel and be comfortable with basic spinning instructions. This is an intermediate class.
