Ready to Ply

This is the result of all that fluff. Border Leicester, Kid mohair and Tussah silk blend.
I tried spinning a sample worsted and seeing the knitted result. I didn't care for it so I did a sample spun over the fold. The result was more pleasing so it was spun in that manner.
The bobbins were all rewound. When I did that I could see all the inconsistencies in my spinning. I can't say it was a great pleasure to spin, but I want to see the finished project through to completion.
I'm sure when it's completed I will have a great sense of accomplishment.
Tomorrow I will do the plying; spinning from many bobbins will even out the inconsistencies & blend the colour in case my carding was not so good.
