making it ap(ply)

i head back to jackson's arm tomorrow for 3 more days. this time i'll be teaching spinning on the wheel.
when i learned how to spin 4 years ago i was taught how to ply (2 or more yarns spun together in the opposite direction from which they were originally spun). i haven't plied since. i don't like the looks of plied yarn. i feel it lacks the exuberance of a single. it seems to be strangled. but over 80% of spinners disagree with me. so i'll be teaching plying and trying not to pass on my prejudice! all weekend i was practising my plying...
