Swatches. Yuck.  But, it seems that they do have a purpose that can make such a different to the outcome of many hours of work.  Oh well, it seems they are here to stay, especially using handspun yarns.

Here are just a few I have been doing for my Certificate of Spinning Course.

I find it best to steam press them lightly to lie flat before gluing them onto my project specification pages.

Just had to put in another photo to show they are really there!  My hand spinning is really coming along but I find I tend towards spinning a constant 12WPI for my medium weight yarns.  It’s good for the major project but something I’d like to work on to add more depth to the yarns I can make.
