My First Single Ply!

So I figured it was time to get beyond the single ply making nerves and just do it. So here is my first single ply yarn I spun yesterday. I absolutely love the colors!

On the bobbin...

Working on some superwash merino in a laceweight size as we speak. This is my first one this size and it seems like it is taking forever to fill the bobbin!

Tour De Fleece Day 3: Navajo Plying

Originally uploaded by maxandlindsey

So I have only navajo plyed a couple times before doing those of these but I think I am finally getting the hang of it. Both of these are wool yarns and I'm not sure of the yardage yet. Luckily after months and months of slacking, all of my bobbins on my spinning wheel are finally empty and ready for more Tour de Fleece spinning butt kicking!

Tour De Fleece Day One

Originally uploaded by maxandlindsey

I am currently in the midst of a spinning competition called the Tour de Fleece. You spin each day of the Tour de France and turn in your daily projects. There are prizes involved! Enough said. So after day one I have spun enough fiber to fill the two bobbins shown in the photo and I will be navajo plying them shortly into full fledged yarn. I will post pics once they are done. Then on to more spinning, and kicking butt!
