Will you walk into my parlour said the knitnutt to the ply...

Last night I plied the bobbins of singles together with much fervour and flurried foot treadling action!
ply it up
Until, that is, one of my bobbins ran out! Augh! It's often the way that one bobbin, though they are seemingly similar in their rotund plumpness, is actually not as long as the other.

So this left me with one and, unfortunately, a half bobbins of deliciously plied scummy Sea Lavender merino! Mmmmmm...!

Nothing like some evening spinning with a fluffy-tiger-pants-wearing honey in the background! *grin*

Our Lovely Ms Goat approves of the outcome, as do I! :)

Nice! When I have extra on a bobbin I make a center pull ball and ply the leftovers from the outside and inside. Does that make sense? Did you already think of that and reject it for some reason that a novice spinner like myself wouldn't know?
