A Perfect Finish: Thwacking and Snapping Handspun Yarn Have you ever stopped to think about why you finish your handspun yarn by thwacking it against a surface or snapping it between your hands? Emonieiesha shares her tips for finishing a skein.
A start in my handspun and hand-dyed Spicery Shetland. Next up is this patchwork handspun. I'm working this top down and will do a slow merge from one colorway to the next. I'll use maybe 4 colorways before I'm done. I have them all laid out on the guest) bed and will decide which is next when the time comes. I foresee hassle in getting all the merges to match on body and arms without running short on a color on one of them.
