Further work on reducing the stash

I now have my frogged wool ready to use so have been able to complete some of the hexagons I had started.

This is a project that will keep me going for a while.  It will reduce the wool stash very slowly.

 

Frogging balls or skeins

The jumper was frogged into balls and I was going to wash them as balls until I read a bit about frogging on the internet.  Apparently they suggest that you should wash the frogged wool as skeins rather than balls.

I then unwound a few balls into skeins and gave that a go.

This is how the skeins looked after being washed.  I wasn’t convinced that the result was any better than leaving the wool in balls to do the wash so I only did what you see here, the rest I left in balls.

After drying the wool I then wound the balls using my new Yarn Winder.  I love it.

You can see that there is still a bit of kink in the wool but it won’t be noticed in what I am using it for.

I am happy with the result.
