There is a way to spin and ply all at the same time; it's a Navaho plying method, so when you are done with your fiber you have a finished yarn (except for setting your twist). You can find it on YouTube. This would have been done at the start of your project, what I would recommend at this point is to spin a second (or more depending on how many plies you want) single and ply them together.
There is also a number of spinning podcasts you could join and post there as well, one of my favorite is The Knitmore Girls, you might also want to join the social network of Ravelry at www.ravelry.com.
So much fun to be had
