Spiral Plied Yarn!

via Instagram


I took a "Successful Plying" class at FiberFusion Northwest with Sarah Anderson today.  First, wow, what a lovely teacher.  Clear, interesting, kind, patient, and thorough.  We first tried to underply yarn, then overply, then find the sweet spot in the middle.  My "balanced" yarn looks a bit like my overplyed, but at least I have some understanding of where I am trying to go.

Then we plied some thick and thin yarn where you deliberately over ply then under ply in a pattern on the same skein.  Finally, we plied some "spiral ply" with really fat singles and some lace weight Merino.  I love how mine came out!
