New Spinning Skills Combo

Long Draw Spinning was so fun I spun all of my bobbins full. As I mentioned in a previous post, two became a single plying ball and turned into some interesting yarn. The others waited until Wheel Spa Day was over. They seemed to create the perfect opportunity to test the Jumbo Flyer set up by plying more of my long draw singles, which had lovely color variations . Why just test it when the yarn would also be ideal for trying chain plying.

That definitely, needs lots more practice. I think my number one problem was trying to ply right handed instead of left. Some of my spindles work better for me left-handed and some right-handed. Many activities are like this for me, try it and see which works.

The spun yarn is a fun art yarn that doesn’t have quite the color separation I’d wanted to maintain, but my favorite parts are those where two plies are one color and one another. It shows that the chain plying is pretty regular for a first try.
