Addicted to rove

Roving, that is. I had free tickets to see the Mad Ants last night, but I could not find anyone to go with me and the weather was bitter cold and hey, here's a bit of Shetland just begging to be spun.

I'm getting thinner singles, but only because I pre-draft the wool to gossamer first. Is this normal?

Yes, it's very normal! I almost always pre-draft my roving/top. Now that I've gotten used to spinning longdraw method, I can't stand a highly compacted piece of fiber.
