I tried my hand at spinning some boucle yarn. My first attempt was from some instructions I found on the web-not a good choice. I didn't take pictures. Lets just call it "yarn barf". So then I decided to go to my spinning books-which I should have done in the first place. Anyway, I spun up 3 spools of some of the Jacob wool I got from the girl I bought my wheel from. I didn't worry about the lumps and bumps that happened from not carding it well enough cuz I was anxious to get it going. It all went together pretty well, even though I had trouble getting the little loops to look loopy like they're supposed to look. Its far from perfect but I got a good size skein of some very nicely textured yarn that I can't wait to find a project for.
