Plying My Wares...

Today's spinning lesson was how to ply.  I plied two of my bobbins and made this...

more plying - 6.12.12

plying - 6.12.12

It's rough (not literally) and ready and almost certainly useless!  It's amazing how little yarn you get from two bobbins of indifferent yarn that took a lifetime bl**dy long time to spin!  I haven't measured the yardage, but it certainly won't go far!

Now I have two batts that I carded on Bente's hand carder (that should firm up those bingo wings) to spin and ply by next week's lesson, which is on Tuesday morning.  So I'd better stop playing about with this blog and get on with it!

It's lovely and I bet it would "dumf" nicely to make fab random flower pics. x Jo
