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!
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!
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!
