Cockles

Finished another spin today.
Definitely learnt something after the last two handspuns. I should spin all my singles first and then ply. Just as in the Natural 3 Colour spin my two skeins are considerably different. The only thing I don't quite understand is the difference in meterage when they weigh the same and the only difference in WPI is 1. I guess you just live and learn. Must say to colour is lovely and the chain plying was perfect to show these colours. Of course now I would love to go and do a 2 ply just to compare but that would me buying more roving...
