Defining Moment #6

Analyzing and Describing my Handspun

Defining Moment #6 was when I took the time to learn how to analyze and describe my yarn in both quantitative and qualitative terms. Quantitative being those things I can measure and qualitative being what I can see or feel. Paying attention to my tpi, grist (wpi), elasticity, twist angle, whether the yarn felt firm or light and airy, etc. all helped me to become more aware of how my spinning style, draft twist and plying methods affected the character of my finished handspun and in turn my hand knit or handwoven cloth.
