100 Days of Spinning – Day 27

I did SO much better today at keeping the yarn even! I really could tell that I was staying right on top of it. My worst problem (so far) has been when too many fibers get caught in the twist before I could stop them, meaning one of two things: I have a thicker section that makes the yarn uneven, OR I stop and let it unwind and then draft it out so that it’s more even.

Today I did a really good job of catching those before they got into the twist, meaning a more even yarn without having to stop and fix it. Yeah. Plus I was faster today too, hooray for practice.

Today’s picture shows me pinching the fiber on its way into the orifice, which is how it twists and winds onto the bobbin.

Until tomorrow.
