Woolen Spinning

I have finished my singles for Yarnspinner's September Spin Along. They are fat and fuzzy. Nothing like what I usually crank out.

Giving up control of what is happening to the twist is very scary at first, but then liberating once you get the hang of it. My only concern is that it is all going to come apart during plying because I was so busy worrying about what my fingers weren't doing to notice how much twist was going into the fiber. I may end up with just a pile of fuzzy stuff at the end, instead of actual yarn but it will be a lesson learned and that's what this is all about-lessons learned.
