100 Days of Spinning – Day 84

Short session today. We are going to the Little Yellow Music House today, and I made risotto, so that’s why I just had a little spinning time. But I’m happy, because I figured out how to avoid a problem where my fiber was fanning out away from the pinch as I draft.

What I’ve been doing is splitting the fiber “chunk” off almost to the end and just working my way through the “join”, but that was causing me some issues. Plus sometimes, I’ve read, you always want to draft the fibers in one direction. So what I was dong would make that harder. Anyway, what I figured out today is that if I grasp some of those fibers as they are starting to spread out, and twist the fiber source a little, they fall right in line as I’m drafting. Yay!

Until tomorrow.
