Diameter Practice

I have committed to spinning this entire pound of merino-silk blend at a steady diameter. That will give me two things. First, the practice is excellent. Just like when I first started spinning, some days are going better than others. Last night when I was tired, not so great. Tonight, better. The other thing it will give me is a large quantity of consistent yarn that I can make something lovely with. The first bobbin is about half full. A few more days and I’ll ply it. That will tell me what kind of yardage I’m getting, so I can predict (more or less) how much yarn I’ll end up with. And honestly, if I really like it and want more, since it’s commercially made I can get more of the same fiber.

Until next time.
