My second try at spinning, and it is already going a lot better. Much smoother then the first try, still some bumps and thick and thin parts but, over all I am pretty happy with my progress. There was also some single left over in one of the balls and I made a nice little bit of single ply out of that. The coloured bits are just the thread I happened to have at hand when I tied the skein together.
I seem to have a preference for two ply, it seems a bit like cheating doing single ply, but I suspect it is a phase and I will grow out of it and have a singles phase after that. Then maybe Ill have a four ply phase! :)
