Further Adventures with Chain Plying

Adventure number two turned out to be a challenge. The single spinning went well but the plying was a nightmare of broken singles. Thankfully it did not kink up into a useless mess.

A good soaking and a spin dry fluffed it up nicely.

The colors, however, disappointed me. I had cannibalized a bag of Merino to put like colors together in order to get long repeats. It seems like I spun for days on a single color only to have it look pretty ordinary when done. The pattern I want calls for long stretches of color and I am not so sure this is going to work after all.
