For me plying is the forgotten final step. It's the stage that makes the biggest difference to your yarn. Most of the time the yarn just goes on the wheel, and we're just happy to get it done, and finish that skein...
But a good plying job, where the plying twist is judged according to the fibres, and the project transforms yarn from being fine, to being wow!
Craftsy Classes aren't cheap, but are a great learning tool. They often have sales so if you're not in a rush, sign up, and wait, or if you get a bit of money to spend as a Christmas present then treat yourself. Learning from a good tutor is a really sound investment.
If you prefer the written word then I'm going to send you back to the Spinning With a Purpose blogposts I wrote earlier this year. They're short exerpts from a workshop I teach at spinning guilds.
This post is part of my advent calendar 2016. Every day in December we're saying so long to 2016 by embracing learning, knowledge and creativity. Each day there will be a new post with a new skill or craft. You can read all the past posts here.
