Take one cake of singles,that has been sat waiting for plying inspiration.
Add a new wheel – I finally caved and bought my own over the weekend. Its my new best friend and I spent far too much time with it since getting it home, sat in the sunshine, with the chickadees sat on the windowsill keeping me company:
On the left is a similar roving, on the right is my Navajo-plyed yarn – I love it!
Now I’m not skilled enough to attempt plying up a self-striping yarn yet, but may give it a go with the second roving. It is always interesting to see the very different results you can come up with, starting with the same base materials.
I have 69 yards of 3ply, so just over 200 yards of singles = 2 points.
Plying = 1 point.
And this is my first Navajo plying, so 1 point for a new skill, a total of 4 points.
Watch this space for a guest post later in the week – from a new knitter!
