We spin singles all the time, but seldom use them that way. If you think about it though, if you can learn to spin singles that behave well enough to work with, how much better you plied yarns would be!  That was the idea behind the spin along study in the group on Ravelry for yarnspinnerstales.  So for the month of March we all tried four different study exercises with spinning singles.  In the first part of this podcast I talk about my experiences as well as some of the other spinner's comments.

For the second part of the pod cast I talk about a DVD that shows all the ways to use the Russian paddle combs made by Andrew Forsyth at Woolcombs

The music today is by the artist Blake found at Music Alley (Podsafe music network).
