What to do when the power goes out for 2 hours? Hmmmm? How about a little experiment with the home made hackle? I lashed on some pretty colors of roving, some sparkle, and got out a metal washer to use as a diz. This was my first attempt at dizzing roving off a hackle. I found that the "pass" from right to left went well. The left to right not so much on the first try. But I gave it another whirl, and it worked out pretty well. I spun up my little rovings into a thick and thin single, and then plied it with some funky textured pink I had on another bobbin. It's only about 10 yards, but it's very pretty-the picture doesn't do it justice. It was a nice way to spend 2 hours without power.
