It was easy spinning from the carded nests  ( present Annual Spinning Day 2010 )
As always I spun rather thin.
I will make a 2 ply yarn, but can’t decide about the second colour. Think….think….think….

I can spin rather thin.

I often choose the Navaho/Navajo plying, because I like a 3 ply yarn.
Now I wondered if I could  do this  with two singles?
I gave it a try……

I crochet the two singles at the same time and the final result will be a 6 ply.

As you can see it is possible. When I took the yarn of my skein winder it twirled to the left a lot.
To much ply! I unplyed it  a little in the spin direction and now it looked and felt better.
It did twirl a little to the right though, but not as much as it did at first to the left.
I am content. It still is a very thin yarn, but it was a nice experiment and a lot of spinning 🙂

Busy knitting.
I use the false fishermans rib.

 

The yarn on the bobbin and the yarn at the top ‘left’ were already spun.
I plyed with mercerized cotton.
