and Z

Z is for Z twist...

...a while back, I was musing along with Cathy about water going down the drain in different directions above and below the equator, and it made me wonder how many spinners spin Z, and how many choose S, as a habit. I usually spin Z to start, even while spinning on the Great Wheel. It does not really matter in the big picture, that is, if you ply, you will make a balanced yarn. Sometimes, I wish I could learn how to "ply" life...as I am usually trying to achieve some sort of balance...

Now I've said my ABC's!

Thanks Anne.. it has been fun participating in the ABC along!

I got very excited yesterday when I was knitting with some rather twisty Noro Kureyon. I kept having to untwist it and noticed that it was z twisted. Then of course I realised that it's just a single and that most singles would be z twisted. However, it makes me wonder whether it would be suitable for two-end knitting...

Glad you had fun - AND stuck with it. That is a lovely picture of the wheel. The colors of the wood are stunning.

I usually spin Z. Took me a few to picture it in my head being nowhere near the drop spindle at the moment.... :)

Fantastic picture!
