Today I spun a bit to finish the bobbin I’ve been working on, then plied it. I’m happy to say that this yarn came out pretty well. It didn’t break at all, I managed to avoid that “too-thin” problem entirely. Yay!
There were also some good stretches of fairly even size, another victory. There were more instances of thicker-than-average size than I’d hoped for, so now I have more information about what to watch for when that’s happening.
Overall, I’d say this came out closer to a worsted weight, which is fine. I actually prefer that weight for most of what I knit.
