03/05/07: Finished Plying Candy Stripe MerinoOk, am seaming up the capecho but lots of weaving in to go too, so before that photo can be taken here is a shot of the Candy Stripe merino all plied up. It came out super fun and is destined to be socks.
I got my inspiration for the double spinning here. And I really think it did make it more springy and defintiely nice and strong for sock yarn. I am thinking a triple ply like the original did would be even better. But alas I only made a 2-ply this time around.
You can see Maia's finished socks here. I just love them!
And here's a more traditional photo of the plied yarn.
