03/20/07: Navajo Plied Sock YarnSo I got this loverly fiber from the Spunky Fiber Club for February, and decided to navajo ply it this time. So it is a little thicker than most of my sock yarn but not too bulky. It has a lot of spring to it cause I did spin it twice just as I did for the candy stripe socks. I tend to under spin single plies on the wheel I guess, and over spin with a hand spindle so spinning twice makes my yarn stronger.
Anywho I love how the colors match the landscape around here (well it matched before this past weekend's snow anyway).
Like that curly craziness there? Well that happened when I was plying in the same direction I spun the yarn, oops! Luckily I just took it and spun it the other direction to fix it and all is well again. This yarn is well on it's way to being a pair of socks. I just have to reknit one of the toes. Fun!
