this is 1oz from my lb.+ of corriedale, which seemed much easier to use.
i split it lengthwise and pre-drafted it to add a second ounce.
the second ounce didn’t go on as well for some reason. problems with take up as the bobbin filled made it somewhat thicker and thinner than the first ounce, although nowhere near so bad as yesterday’s yarf. maybe should have done two 1oz bobbins and plied them instead of filling one?
i think i’ll do another bobbin.
do i have to let them rest overnight before plying them?
well, i tried, but plying is just not working: the final result is not much better than yesterday’s. after 9 or 10 straight hours, the weekend is over now. i broke it off and gave up. i am sad.
til next week.
