It's a Plan

I was pretty sure the latest plied yarn was going to be a kinky mess.


I peddled like a maniac to get enough twist in it. It wasn't though. It's behaving just fine.



 This is a big improvement. The plies hold together much better.



I've still got more to ply though. My bobbin couldn't hold it all.




I've decided that the pattern will be A Hap for Harriet by Kate Davies. It's not exactly what I usually make for a light spring shawlette to wear to the usually too warm MDSW but as soon as I saw this pattern I knew this yarn wanted to be it-and you can't argue with yarn.
