all plied up

finished the 8 oz. went very quickly. have 2 bobbins packed full, and one partial bobbin of plied yarn.




the skeinikins outside.




the skeinikins having a bath.



now they are hanging and drying. the yarn is nice and soft, but my yarn never seems to be very elastic, i wonder if it's because i use the short draw?




i got very lucky and found a reeves spinning chair on the housecleaning pages, here's the frame wheel and chair in front of my windows, don't they look nice together?

hope tonight's gilmore girls is better than last weeks. i don't like what they are doing with the characters ;-(

You might get better elasticity if you also change the kind of wool you are spinning, even if you don't change from short draw. If you prefer to spin from prepared fibers, the run-of-the-mill Brown Sheep white domestic top (supercheap, $12/lb, I think, and great for dyeing) makes an incredibly bouncy yarn.
