BFL Spinning Update


BFL Spinning Update, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

I finally finished plying the BFL singles! The bobbins were SO overfull. After filling one bobbin with 3-ply, the singles bobbins are now appropriately full. So I have a lot of plying to do. I'm not thrilled about the low twist angle, but I don't know if it bugs me enough to go back and run all the singles through the wheel to add more twist. I may use the finished yarn for something other than socks anyway, since I'm going to have so much yardage. (The first skein was 200 yards and I estimate that took up only 1/5 of the singles.) Also note that these were quick-and-dirty photos taken just before the move.
