At the Wheel

I have some knitting projects in mind, but don’t have the yarn yet. So I am spinning madly this week.  The Shetland with the bits of silk and angora is on the wheel at the moment.  For once I did a sample spin. My new favourite tecnique of chain plying proved to be too stiff for the Shetland so I am doing a traditional two ply. When I knit my gauge I may end up with a four ply. I want the final yarn to be soft and fairly fluffy, so I am trying not to overspin the ply.
