We now return you to our previously scheduled spinning madness.
Thank you all so much (I think) for the enablement and (definitely for) the kind words! I am truly having a blast!
The big news? I tried Navajo plying! It is super cool. Here is a regularly plied (two ply) mini skein on the left and a Navajo plied (three ply from one single!) mini skein on the right.
Same roving, but vive la differénce! Amazing, isn't it? It was kind of curly, so I steamed it this morning over the tea kettle. My husband might have given me a few strange looks, but nothing compared to the look he gave me when he asked me what I was doing and I began waxing rhapsodic about Navajo plying. And then, when I just couldn't believe that he wasn't as thrilled as I, I tried to explain it more in depth. Heh. Um. That wasn't the issue after all. In fact, I mistook a bemused "how could anyone care that much about a pile of yarn?" look for a plain "huh?" look. What can I say? He's very enlightened in other ways. And he's going to make me a spinning wheel. :)
So there you go; I just keep getting in deeper and deeper! :sigh:
