Tour de Fleece Day 18: The problem with fuzzy yarn...

... is how can you tell when you photograph it up close if your picture is in focus or not?

I'm halfway through the qiviut, and appear to be teaching myself the long draw as I go. At least, I've been letting twist into the draft zone, and the draw is slowly getting longer and longer. Ah, this stuff is lovely! I weighed the roving on a gram scale to divide it into two equal portions for spinning into singles for a 2-ply, but I may just spin the whole ounce on one bobbin and try plying from the inside and outside of a plying ball. A new challenge, and I don't want to waste a gram of this roving!
