I've been spending more time with learning to spin art yarn, or"textured yarn," as Jacey Boggs prefers to call it. I am reasonably happy with my first attempt at supercoils, though it isn't a completely balanced yarn--I'll get there.
Beehives, though--not so much. I understand what to do (I think) but so far I haven't been so successful in actually doing it. I'm not getting the core section spun correctly, and I end up with SERIOUS overtwist in the yarn ahead of the beehive. I'll keep at it. Maybe that will be my New Year's resolution, to perfect the beehive before the end of the year!
