Do you feel frustrated or confused when trying to spin differently sized yarns? How do you keep your yarn consistent in diameter and twist? This is the class for you! We will work on solving the mystery of diameter control, learning how to adjust your wheel and refine your drafting skills to produce consistent results in both diameter and twist angle. Along the way we will discuss various yarn structures and their best uses, such as hand knitting for lace, socks, hats, or sweaters, or for weaving, tapestry, needlepoint, and more! We will also discuss how to track your techniques to be able to reproduce a yarn at a later date.
