A half-filled bobbin has accumulated already!....long-draw spinning accumulates more single ply yarn faster than a short forward method, for me anyway.
I am spinning again and loving it. This time around I am spinning 'long draw'....and it is SO enjoyable to see the wool pull out into a long strand, rather magically. Here is a link to a youtube video...in which Ruth Mac Gregor demonstrates 'longdraw spinning'. She is a pro! Some of my spinning looks just like her her demo and some not, more thick/thin strands. She has been a great help to me....answering my email questions. I have a double treadle spinning wheel...a 'Lendrum' and love it! Now to get knitting once more. I forget how much pleasure there is in spinning and knitting...any needlework in fact, until I quietly focus on it.
