I just couldn’t help it!
Yes, I plied it all last night. Well, except for a samples worth which I plan to use to try an n-ply. Girl Child is about to go to the doc, so I had a minute to snap a few shots.
Judith’s videos got me all amped up about plying and so, I just had to try it! This hasn’t been washed yet, but I’m snapping pics at every stage just in case I muck it up. At least I’ll have my memories. 🙂
I have to say that the motions are a little easier after having watched the videos. I’ll have to try it a few more times and with more plies though before I’ll be really comfortable. I didn’t think this would take as long as it did though. Plying usually takes less time than spinning the singles. All I recall was thinking I’d be done in an hour from 8:30 pm and finally turning in around 2:30 am! Then, I put it on a niddy noddy and I found out why. I got about 532 yards of yarn out of that prep! Well, it’s either that or proper plying takes more time, lol.
Look! Yarn soup! I don’t know what my thing is with all the yarn and food correlations. I must be posting while hungry or something.
Anyway, I love learning new things, especially when it comes to yarn, so this was pretty fun. But now comes the hard part…Finishing well. We’ll see what it looks like when it comes out of the bath.
