This shows the 4 colours of wool batts used-plus what I put the singles onto to ply- and the plied yarn on the spindle (the plain black was spun into a singles then plied with the 3 colour singles that you see on the stick...).
And this shows the remainder of the multicolour singles plied with black thread after I ran out of the 25g of wool I spun with which to ply originally-and the difference between the two.
I immediately thought of licorice all-sorts candy as I started the plying and it was the first thing DH said when he saw it! LOL! ( The above right picture is a bit dark-sorry) It's dramatically different- don't you think? Will take a better photo ( light and neatness of yarn balls) of them together once they are washed and dried and skeined properly. I am too eager to share to wait for all that to happen! LOL
Speaking of eager:
I also thought you might like to see what my new bowl looks like:
There are both finished and unfinished yarns in there-and some underneath that you can't see. :)
