Just wanted to share how excited I am that I have such a wonderful spinning wheel that happily spun lots and lots of wool at the weekend, see last post, - I had 3 full Louet (so think big!) bobbins of Zwartble grey. Two bobbins plied, started Saturday evening and finished this evening (have been to bed and out in between ... honest!).
Two of the bobbins already started the plying

I plied as much as possible to see what the bobbin could hold and filled it to the maximum, wound onto the niddy noddy to make a skein to give it a final wash. Then I weighed it and it is a whopping 200g exactly!

and a whole spare bobbin so more to spin

Whoa, how exciting is that and all in one too, no joins.Pretty exciting for this spinner. Just needs a final wash and wound into a ball to use. Now to look at those patterns.
