Decisions, Decisions!

When I start a spinning project, I give a lot of thought to what I want to do with the fiber. I have to decide before I start spinning whether I want to spin end to end, then chain ply or ply from both ends of a center-pull ball, split the yarn in half and spin up each half separately to make two skeins that are pretty much identical or to make a 2-ply, split the yarn in various ways to make a fractal, a chain-plied fractal, or a gradient, etc. 431 more words

For several years now I have heard the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival discussed, in tones both hushed and exuberant.
