Paper singles. Some spun with the aid of a bobbin winder, some on a drop spindle. They're a little slubby, but that's fine with me. It would go a bit easier if my spindle was significantly lighter, though.
I had a lot of blue already carded, so I decided to spin it on with what was leftover from plying the other day. At the top of that bobbin you can see how fluffy my yarn was when I was initially getting the hang of it. The lower three-quarters show how fine I'm spinning now. Some of it is like sewing thread. Awesome-O.
The two big skeins above were the last of the past week's plying. The helper monkey has designated it "mixed-up purple-brown". I also spun up several singles for tomorrow night's demonstrations. My back and shoulders are very sore. No more spinning wheel for a few weeks.
