Plying practice

More spinning and plying practice! I tried to pay close attention to my singles to improve my plying.  The left skein was divided evenly, and spun in the same order, so that with plying most of the colors would line up.  For the most part, it worked!  The right skein was reversed so that the colors would only line up by accident.

Left: BFL Twist by Color Bug Yarns in color Koi
Right: Domestic Merino by Yarn or a Tale

Both were purchased at the Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor - the BFL came from 2010, the Merino from 2009.   It is lovely to use fiber out of my stash.  Now I just need to "finish" each skein.  But this is the first yarn I have produced that I WANT to knit.  So very exciting!
