I tried to get a more consistent spin on this one and to spin a bit thinner. I think I managed to achieve that reasonably well. I also tried to ply this and I had to do it by hand because I didn't have anything else to do it with. I've read that you can use the spindle to ply but of course as soon as I took this off the spindle I had another on the go! Blue Peter would have been proud of me - its amazing what you can do with a clothes airer and the length of the room. :-) The upshot is that I have actually produced something that looks like the wool you'd use to knit with. I've a long way to go before I've got a jumper though this little hank weighs in at a whopping 10 gms.
