In Which the Pirate Treadles On… and On… and On.

Ten observations about plying yarn:

  1. It takes forever.
  2. It is a heck of a leg workout.
  3. I can totally see why people get jumbo flyers and bobbins for it.
  4. I love watching the colors of the two singles come together.
  5. The floodlight over my spinning wheel sure does put off a lot of heat.
  6. It sure would be nice if I could farm this job out.
  7. I think this yarn is going to be lovely when it’s finished.
  8. If it’s ever finished.
  9. No matter how carefully I split the fiber, the bobbins will never play out evenly.
  10. Andean plying is a really neat trick.
