some thoughts on the laceweight...
After I finished winding the Oregon Red Clover Honey laceweight, I had some thoughts about working with this very fine yarn. Unlike the Wooly Wonka yarns, that Anne Hanson describes as heavier than some laceweights, the ORCH is very fragile. Because there's so much yardage in the skein, it winds into a substantial ball! Even though I wound it very carefully from the swift onto the ballwinder, I'm concerned about the tangles that might crop up if I feed the yarn from the inside of the ball. So I think I'll be working with this beauty from the outside of the ball. Anyone else have thoughts on this?
