Spinning for Feral Beginners

In defense of energised singles

Ok, I can see I will have to agree to disagree -- my singles sock isn't pilling. That's because I OVERTWISTED the hell out of that yarn and knit it from the drop spindle while it was freeeesh. They are SPROINGY, stretchy happiness and require no stinking nylon or anything of that nature. The only bits that are a bit fuzzy are the nibs that I spun in cuz I suck at spinning. Seriously.

I know this violates some strange sacred rule of spinners everywhere, but it's my damned yarn and I like it this way. I do know how to ply, but that isn't what I was after. So There.
