Have you been spinning combos after reading my Knittyspin Column?
Which combo intrigues you right now, combo spin or combo draft? I’m just happy to finally see the difference between the two up close and swatched!
Of course, as soon as I finished swatching the two combos I wanted to know what yarn and cloth would look like if I combined one-ply of combo spun yarn and one-ply of combo drafted yarn.
Luckily, I had leftover singles on both bobbins. I plied them together and knit a swatch.
It’s exactly a combination of the two yarns. There are speckles of color from the combo drafted single and color stripes from the combo spun single.
If you look at the bit of loose yarn in this photo you can see yellow running through it all, and blue, purple and turquoise spiraling around it. The yellow is from the combo spin bobbin and the multi colors are from the combo draft bobbin.
It makes such interesting knitted fabric. I wonder what a 3-ply with two combo drafted singles and one combo spun single would look like? Or two combo spun, and one combo drafted?
Every time I think I’m done experimenting I get a new idea!
