Jo's Socks, Step 4 - Spinning!

I mentioned that the dye had pooled a bit in my cling-film packets and so the wool was quite dark in places and quite light in places. More of a contrast than I'd expected. I'm not sure that I want a self-striping effect this time. A friend suggested putting it through the drum carder once more, and this is the much happier result.
Finally it's time to start spinning it. I'm using short-draw for a nice tight strong worsted type yarn. I'm trying to work quite fine because the socks are made on small needles (2.25mm)
