Just the mention of cotton, however, sucked me back into the land of cotton. I just couldn’t stay away so I dug out my ongoing cotton spinning project (ongoing because cotton lasts FOREVER) and went to work.
The small ball is a singles of about 300 yards of cotton, I would estimate. The ball being wound from the 2 spindles is probably another 150 yards at least – as a 2-ply, of course. I can’t wait to wind this cotton off so I can spin another singles to match the ball and get it all plied. Will that be enough cotton spun?
I mentioned this was an ongoing project. This is a skein I spun earlier. I have another 2-3 larger skeins floating around here somewhere, one spun from tri-color natural-colored cotton. The goal was to spin enough to knit something but I haven’t figured out yet what would be best to knit.
