The Cat Knits...

A singular forum to discuss knitting as craft, therapy, and way of life (with or without the benefit of cats).

Time Trials

Well, the teams are in Marseilles and competing in their team trials. Fast times for some advantage in the Tour. I am happy to say I have spun two bobbins that are ready to be plied.  I wish I could say that I am improving in consistency, but that still seems to elude me. I also haven't hit on the optimum threadling speed for the type of single I wish to spin. Perhaps, it's more a problem of keeping up a consistent speed to get enough twist. It looks fine as it zips onto the bobbin, but if I take a closer look at it, the twist seems to vanish before my eyes. Pedal faster and harder?
