I didn't see a thread. So, I think I'll be the one to start it.
The first thing I did was finish plying Alpaca singles. I had three colors, red, purple, and blue. The blue I mixed with some silver firestar, it started looking a bit Tardis-y. In a good way. I wish I had more of that so I could have plied it with itself. But I didn't. So, decided that I wanted to see how plying each color together would affect the overall color.
So, here is the result of that. I think the three total are almost 200 yards...I didn't spin as finely as I would have liked.
I finished those quickly because I was eager to start spinning up one of the batts Jexxican sent me in the fiber swap. So I had the singles first, but because I broke off my larger Whorl on my DD a few days ago (it fell out of my hand and landed on a chair. I have wood glue to fix it soon) I had to use the smaller of the two, which I haven't done yet, so the singles ended up overspun.
Here are the singles
Here they are after they were plied:
Jexxican's batts are so beautiful. They've been so fun to spin up. I'm going to put half of it up to save for a special day, so I don't spin up the rest of it.
I know everyone's busy finishing up their swap items to send out, but if anyone else has done anything, I'd love to see
