Lost skills

I’ve plied 2 1/2 bobbins of the green fiber and while I like the resulting yarn, it is clear that my long hiatus from spinning has really resulted in a decline in my abilities.  The twist and thickness is all over the place!

It will still work just fine for a mittens/hat/cowl combo, my tentative plan, but I need to be doing this more regularly to get back some of the evenness of previous yarns.  I was never more than intermediate, but I can do better!

A close up to show the unintended texture:

Still, sometimes the less uniform yarns make for the most interesting knits.  I still have more of the fiber to spin into singles, so I should end up with at least another bobbin of two ply.
