I got a new pic of the center pull ball. I'm so happy, I just have to show.

I never spun on a wheel, but I found that my singles aren't all that even, and doing a 3-ply helped a lot with making the differences less noticeable than they would be with a 2-ply. I also noticed that I got more even lenghts of yarn from drafting continuously with the spindle moving than I'd get with extreme pre-drafting. It was definitely a thing about memory on my fingers. The best parts of the singles were spun while I was paying less attention, spinning in front of the computer while reading an e-book. Every time I'd forget to pay attention and the spindle hit the floor, I'd look to the piece of yarn just spun and it was all at the same thickness.

I got back to spinning after several months, with a new spindle, and I just made my first usable yarn! Finally something that is soft and (mostly even) and on the thickness I was aiming at!

I used a superwash roving from Yarn Love on the Bayfield Apple colourway, and have a little less than 200m of fingering weight 3-ply. I am still spinning for the second skein but I couldn't wait more so I plied the singles I had already  Grin

this is a great pattern for heathered yarns, i love the way the yarn you used has the most subtle variegation because of that.
