i just finished spinning this lovely corriedale from 'into the whirled'. i have a pattern that i'm anxious to make and needed a specific yarn. after searching the web, the light bulb lit and i decided to make it myself. (really now, isn't that one of the reasons that i spin my own yarn???) it came out better that i anticipated.
i spun some lovely merino into a very fine single, and to keep the color intact decided to navajo ply. notice my spiffy basket? found this awesome basket maker at a festival and she custom made this to accommodate my bobbins. this was the first chance i've had to use it. so far, i'm extremely pleased.
the bobbin on the left is my single and on the right is the one that i've already plied. i planned on doing a two ply, but soon saw that it was not going to match up color-wise, so i three plied it. love the gently colors of this roving and i'm happy it's turning into such lovely yarn.
