Time to Ply

 I've got two bobbins of Spunky Eclectic Merino/Silk in Forest Dancer ready to ply.

I also had a nice morning on Tuesday. It helped to get the wheel outside so I could see what I was doing.

 One bobbin was spun on a drop spindle, the other on the wheel. Can you tell the difference. Me either.

I watched the videos in my Craftsy spinning class before I got started and it helped to know that for the most part I really have the right idea. I just need to check on what's going on more often and rewind and re-spin when necessary. I also want to thank all  of you that gave me advice in the comments. Your little tricks and tips really helped as well. I'm looking at plying in a whole new way-and I'm liking what I am seeing.


  1. What an amazing, gorgeous color - love it! Glad it is working for you.

  2. I can't see the difference between spindle and wheel spun; nice to know you are consistent!
    I like the yarn you have here; I like it more wpi while still maintaining drape-you've got it just right here! (And the color is to die for!!!!)

  3. The yarn looks great. The plying is so nice and EVEN!!! Have fun.

    You wouldn't be spinning outside here today. Rain, rain, RAIN!

  4. I am so glad that others tips really helped you.
    Im so starved for sunshine that the shadows on your fingers are enticing me!

  5. Looking good and I can't believe the great weather you're having, although I hear you had a doozy of a thunderstorm yesterday! Your wheel looks so much like the one I had. It makes me miss mine!

  6. Looking good! I love that shade of green too. Perfect for upcomimg St. Patties Day.

  7. It is looking fantastic. Beautiful color too.
