Here is my empty spindle at the beginning of the opening ceremonies:
And this is where I was right after Gretzky lit the second cauldron:
I split the roving into four (not necessarily equal) portions, and I’ve already gone through one of them.
Since the roving itself is mottled, the singles are barberpoled, which is kind of neat.
A more skilled spinner would get sock yarn out of this, but I think it’ll be between sport and DK once it’s plied. That’s fine. Since I’m making decent progress I’m thinking of converting this to the “long track” event, which would require knitting the finished yarn before the torch goes out. We’ll see. I’ll try not to get too far ahead of myself.
