Some of the new yarn that came today. The two skeins on the left are from The Loopy Ewe (Lorna's Laces in the Georgetown colorway) and the two on the right are from Twisted (the left is in the Lizardman colorway, the right is in the Netherfield colorway). I'm not sure which to use first. The Lorna's Laces is incredibly soft but I absolutely love the Netherfield. Decisions, decisions!
At The Spinning Loft Saturday, Beth showed me a great method for plying. You take your full singles bobbin and using a ball winder, wind it all into a ball making sure you'll be able to find the end when you're done winding. Then, you attach both ends of the single back onto your bobbin and ply from both ends of the ball. With this method, you'll never end up with extra single left on one of the two bobbins. It also lets you ply more often. I'm not sure Beth, but I think you're now enabling my plying addiction.
In addition to new sock yarn, I also have lots of new fiber. I'm not allowed to buy any fiber for a while. At least until I spin up what I have. I'll have pictures tomorrow.
