I came to the realization the other day that I had no more empty bobbins for my wheel projects. They were all in use with the remnants of other things. I needed to do something with all those leftover singles or throw them away.
I decided that those colorful singles should be plied in order to give me a couple of darker stripes on that green sock yarn I just finished.
It's has an interesting tweedy effect but it needs some pizazz.
I wound off the singles and plied them on a spindle since all my wheels are busy at the moment.
Plying on a spindle is hard work.
I got to use my cute little ninny noddy.
If I had known that this fiber would look so nice plied with itself I wouldn't have used the solid green with it for that sock yarn. This is another case where sampling and swatching would have saved me a lot of time and grief-but where's the fun in that?
