After I finished spinning the exploding clown yarn I started thinking about my next spinning project, going through my stash and looking at my tools. On thing I realised is that I had two bobbins with a reasonable quantity of singles, one left over from some yarn I spun in June 2011 and some of Melanie’s amazing fibre, where I had filled half a bobbin and then sort of just stopped.
I decided to ply them together, just to get them off the bobbins and to see how they look. I really like the pretty baberpole effect, and, with 399 meters, there should be enough for a small shawl. Although I'm not sure what shawl would look good in yarn this multicoloured. Any suggestions welcomed.
Lizzie Bennet Diaries just as I started this, and spent many a happy hour watching it and plying away.
