I often join the end of a freshly spun single to the previous singles for maximum yardage, especially when using one of Ed’s smaller spindles such as a Kuchulu. A number of people have requested a video of the process. Last fall I filmed one but the new video editing software got the best of me and I gave up after bumbling around with it far too long. Today two more singles needing joining and I decided to film it and devote the time necessary to figuring out how to edit it.
The videos are quite different and each has its merit: one join is with two laceweight singles, today’s join was with a dk weight and I’d remembered to leave the end of the fiber fluffed. I couldn’t decide which video people would find most useful so ended up uploading them both to YouTube.
I’d love to know which you find most useful!
