On day 3 I did not get much spinning accomplished, that darn work got in the way. However I did manage to get half of my “Bloom” roving carded up to be spun in the “Monet” way. It appeared as though for a true “Monet” spin the fiber was to be hand carded. I did do about half of this section of fiber, a quarter of the total fiber, on hand cards but the other half was done on a drum carder. I love how this fiber turned out.
As for the 4th day, I managed to begin spinning the roving from my wrist distaff as it came. This is great practice for me, not only spinning consistently, but moving across the end of a piece of top. Both skills are taking quite a bit of concentration so I can only do so for about an hour at a time. This means that this 4 ounces of fiber is going to take quite some time to spin. I fully intend to enjoy the experience to the fullest of my ability!
I promise this really is about 2 hours of spinning. There is some corkscrewing, but from my experience these things tend to work themselves out in the plying.
