You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
I learned to Andean ply my singles yarns into a double plied yarn! Wahoo! I’m loving it, and turning a lovely pencil roving with GREAT watery-type colors into a two-ply yarn for a giftie. It’s classified Super-Secret, though, so no more disclosures!
It’s named “Shala” and I can only think that it’s a hint back to the Carribbean/islands, cause that’s what it makes me think of. How about you? It’s GORGEOUS either way, though! By the way, DON’T click on that link until you’ve hidden your wallet – they’re having a sale!!!! OMG!!! Must. Have. Self. Control. GAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!
I’m loving my new skill, and plan to spin a nice, full spindle each night, to be plied up the next night. Should get this present knocked out quickly, and plying is a great thing to do while watching the olympics, since you’re doing a lot of waiting for the twist to settle!
