On an overcast, dark morning it's tough to get a good picture of white Polworth being plied on a dark green bobbin, but here it is. The fact that the singles were spun semi woolen and are fuzzy and fluffy means any real definition in the photo is next to impossible. I've begun plying the Polworth finally and I wanted to show you what I had so far. I can't remember when I began spinning the first bobbin of singles and honestly, this is not my best spinning by a long shot. I spun both bobbins of singles in a semi woolen style, but the second bobbin was much fluffier and fuzzier than the first bobbin. Of course the months (year?) it took me from beginning the first bobbin to finishing the second bobbin (plus a move) didn't help much.

I noticed that I wasn't as consistent as I used to be when I was spinning the light violet merino and silk too. Obviously, I need to get back to practicing more regularly with spinning because I'm really not happy with the inconsistency I'm seeing in my current spinning. This means I'm going to be blogging more spinning than I have been, but I enjoy spinning, and now that I've seen the kind of yarn I can produce, I want to get back to that.

I think you make a good point about practice. I have a specific project in mind for the merino/silk blend I'm spinning right now, and rather than let time go by, I'm going to spin that second bag. I imagine it would be hard to reproduce what I did with the first bag if I wait too long. Then I'll have mismatched product.

It took me a year before I caught on to spinning at all. But now when I start I can't stop. But life stopped me in the middle of a spinning project and it took me a couple hours and a couple tried before I felt comfortable again. I'm not as good as most the spinners in my family but I love doing it and am proud of my accomplishments. It's one that I had to work hard to learn and whatever I produce just makes me grin every time.
