Ha! Not what you were expecting was it? 6 oz. of yummy Polwarth. When I purchased it, I knew right away I wanted to 3 ply it.
Bobbin progress shot.
A few months and 2 more bobbins later....
Setting up to be 3 plied.
Now that's a full bobbin!
As usual, navajo plied the leftovers
Plied shot! (sorta like a toe pic shot ;)
Even after it's bath it was still quite twisty. So I ran it through the wheel and soaked it again. Much better after that. Turns out I had plied it on the smallest whorl so it added extra twist.
After it's 2nd bath, it poofed up a bit and is perfect.
Yum! Hungry now!
Dyed by FatCatKnits for the August 2011 SAL
6 oz. of Polwarth fiber
Approx. 187 yds of heavy worsted 3 ply
Not a heck of a lot of yardage, however...it was 3 singles that made it...that means I'm getting better at spinning consistent singles....
Well...I thought so after this spin....stay tuned later this week. Once the package arrives I'll post what I mean :(
