I just joined Ravelry yesterday and what an awesome site that is i love it(thanks Mandie for the invite) so much to do and learn and i found a link for making coils in your yarn, so i just had to have a go. First up i used the wrong base yarn, something i spun and not nearly strong enough to do the whole yarn in coils so i just did one every 6-10 inches or so. Its a bit loose in spots and a bit thick or thin in other spots but i really love the effect and i'll definetely be trying again, I only have a drop spindle at the moment but oooooo i really need a wheel. This took me hours and hours lol
I'm so sorry about my camera, its so old and doesnt show up no-where near as well as in real life. But this just gives an idea. This is the yarn from the post below. :))


  1. How fun! I haven't done much core spinning or wrapping. This makes me want to experiment too! :D

  2. Thanks Jenn, This is my first effort, so will definetely be doing more practise :))
