When I spin there are times when I often end up with these random little bits of singles leftover. I know there are ways around of it, spinning from the same plying ball, chain plying, ect. Heck there are times when there might be enough left over to make a wee skein, which is always nice. The truth is that there are just going to be times, at least in my spinning career, when there are leftovers, and I am okay with that. I am okay with it because I always love combining a few random singles and seeing the results. Maybe it is the thrill of the unknown, or the fact that it will almost always be such a small amount that makes it seem almost special, whatever it might be I like it.
Case in point:
This wee skein, a combo of some leftovers. The red from the first Hanks In the Hood I finished a few weeks ago and the gray/black combo from the Frabjous fibers I knocked out earlier in the year. It’s only about 20 yards of this brilliant burgundy-grayish color combo that I am in love with.
Which brings me to the downside of leftovers…when it’s really good, it often means there’s very little of it left.
