Expectation vs. Reality

Is it real? Yup!
Final length:  186.33 yds
Plies: 2
Competition Yardage: 558.99 yds
Fiber Source: Who knows!
Method Used: Worsted
Description:Spun using my handy Akerworks lazy kate. I think I am zeroing in on this tension thing. However: my expectation was that the colors in the plies would line up, and I'd have solid-color sections with some barber pole overlap. Reality was mostly barber pole, with only occasional solid-color sections. Either my spinning (still) isn't even, I didn't split the roving properly, or perhaps I reversed the direction of the roving on one of the singles (or possibly a combination of two or more of these options). Oh well!
