working on core spinning

 A few months ago I carded a bunch of batts that are now just sitting on the shelf. I have been slowly learning core spinning and decided to star spinning up all the batts sitting on the shelf and  put them to good use. This batt is called Vanilla Icing and is soft wool, tencel, tussah silk and silver angelina. I used crochet cotton thread #10 as the core and added bits of chenille yarn. The result : 60 yards of pretty bulky yarn. There is still a lot of over spin but not as much as the first skein.
