3 ply!

Just one for today, mostly because this one took a LOT of work because this is a true 3-ply.

Unlike the chain plying from before, I had to spin up three bobbins worth of single before I even got to do this. It was a lot of work, and I'm not sure I balanced things right to make sure I can make the entire thing 3-ply (since one of the bobbins might run out), but I like the product. This particular combed top worked well since it was more mottled than variegated, after all.

I'm very happy with it as it came out rather consistent other than a spot here or there, though it has made me realize that I REALLY REALLY need a decent lazy kate. The one that came with my wheel is a bit... slapdash. The yarn spins off of it far too quickly and then it tangles and then I'm half fighting that and half spinning. Sadly enough, the best 'lazy kate' I found was an old jar used for dried fruit. THAT bobbin gave me no trouble at all. But I found one on Etsy I like that will more than likely get purchased outright tomorrow when I get paid.

Anyway, as soon as all the plying is done, I'll probably have a picture. And then I'm on to trying some merino, which I have thus far avoided as the stuff is SLIPPERY!
