I finished up the BFL singles (these were started before the Olympics). I'll have to wait a little while before I can ply it because the first bobbin and a half were done so long ago*. Fortunately I've got the grey Polwarth to ply in the meantime. Ramius doesn't look too impressed either way, does he?

ETA: Ooops, I forgot the picture! Also * when you have previously spun singles that have been sitting, the twist is less active than freshly spun singles. If you try to ply the two together, it's very difficult to get them plied nicely. If you let the fresh singles "age" a bit, I think it's easier.

I don't think the picture showed up...

So forgive me - I'm a very beginning spinner - but why do you have to wait before you ply it? Does the yarn need a chance to settle or something?

(FWIW I just bought a spinning book last night so I'll get the terminology and everything straightened out soon :-D)

I have about 5 or 6 bobbins waiting to be plied. N'm not sure which is the most recent.
How long to you let them "age" before plying? It has been at least 2 weeks since I last finished one.
PS, hows the Franket?
