I have started spinning for The Blanket.  I can see that it will be a long process and I really should get some advice on it but I am ploughing ahead anyway.  I have never spun such a long fibre staple and I am having trouble making thick singles – I think I’ll have to go back to the plan of making a 3 ply but I know plying will be a long task with lots of small skeins as I don’t have a jumbo flyer…

Anyway, here is some flicked wool that I am spinning:

I have a VERY LONG way to go for this one but I will enjoy the journey :).
