In Which the Pirate Plies More.


Over the weekend I worked on chain-plying the rest of the merino singles. By the time I got to the end of it, I’d gotten a lot better at joining in broken ends! It was a bit of a relief to see the end in sight. The orangey stuff on the next bobbin is Zen Yarn Garden Rambouillet that’s just as fine as the merino, and is also destined to be chain-plied.


I used the jumbo flyer for the plying, and still have room for more on it – which is fortunate, because there’s still a few more ounces of this fibre left to spin. I swapped back to the regular flyer and bobbin, and got back to making singles.


The finished yarn might end up for sale in my Etsy shop, since right now I have more yarn than I know what to do with… and Maryland Sheep and Wool is coming up soon!

    Lovely to view as always! I love the muted variations! And I’m drooling ever more for a wheel! <3

    Oh my goodness, that is looking just gorgeous! I can’t wait to see the rest of it spun up and plied. The orange Rambouillet is beautiful, too.
