This is some of the Shetland I've been working on all plied up. I haven't set the twist yet but I want to get more of it plied before going there. When I took this stuff off the niddy noddy I was really pleased because this yarn was balanced folks! Yeah me! It's spinning up a bit thicker than I had intended. That's okay because I usually feel unnaturally compelled to spin as thin as possible. Making fat yarn is stepping outside of my comfort zone in a big way.
I think I've mentioned before that I have a ton of this Shetland to spin. After I ply the last bit I'm going to change the ratio on my wheel and do some experimenting. I love the color black but this is getting on my nerves! I may go looking for some color if playing with ratios doesn't keep me interested. (Boy. That last sentences sounded pretty geeky.)
I'm off to get Boogie ready for bed, work on a new knitting project, (I should have pics up Friday) and settle in for some "Top Chef" action.
ETA: If you get a chance, check out the newest issue of 'Piecework'. It's all knitting and it's really cool.
