Not only have I been knitting, but I have been spinning.
I bought a grab bag of mill end rovings from The Sheep Shed Studio awhile back and finally decided to spin it up. (Actually, from looking at the pictures I think it was just a grab bag--full of all sorts of bits and pieces.)
First I separated it into 2 types:
And that one:
On purpose, I decided to spin it imperfectly (stop that snickering). I was sort of trying for a thick and thin yarn, but that didn't happen. Lets just say that if there was a bump I just left it there.
Here are some singles:
Then here they are plied together.
I tried to ply in a new way: holding one ply in each hand and then joining and twist onto the bobbin. It looks completely uneven, which on a regular bobbin of spun yarn I would hate, but on this it achieves my goal of imperfect.
In a big way.
