Time to ply

All of the Blue Faced Leicester is spun into singles.

That little hank in the front is 1-1/2 oz. that was spun on Mary's spindle. I tried my hand at Navajo Plying tonight. It's seriously overspun--or perhaps I should say it has a lot of energy.

The singles on the bobbins will be plyed tomorrow night, then I'll start in on the Fiber Fiend! Mars.

  • Wow, look at you go. The singles are looking good!

  • You've made so much progress!! Very even looking singles.

    It's really hard to not overply with Navajo ply. I still have trouble with that. Luckily, BFL stays soft no matter what!

  • Dang, woman. Navajo plying already? When you get in, you get IN. Wow.

  • Wow, you've got yarn there! I have made no progress and will clearly be outshined by y'all tonight. Of course if I actually picked up my (brand new!) spindle or dusted off the wheel...

  • OK, that's it, I have to learn how to spin. Very nice yarn!

  • Wow, you're fast! It looks great! You'll be out-spinning us all next Saturday! I can't wait to see what you do with the Mars fiber!
