An Aha Moment

I have always admired pretty rainbow bobbins of singles but mine are usually a mish mash of muddy color. I usually take my fiber and break it into short lengths before pre-drafting it and then spin it willy-nilly. I could never figure out why my singles were never as pretty as my fiber.

Today I took an entire length and split it down the middle because of simple laziness and then split those lengths down the middle and pre-drafted the long lengths. After spinning one I looked at my bobbin and was amazed at how pretty it was. Not breaking up the graduation in color makes a huge difference in the color of the singles. Who knew?
