I am in love with plying with thread. I really like the affect and I am not into how much time it takes to ply two handpun singles together. I got some cool thread from michaels this week and made this---

Pretty.  I have recently started plying with thread, and I agree that it is a lot of fun and can produce some excellent results.

This yarn is so amazing.  I wouldn't have thought that turquoise would go so great with rainbow, but this is just gorgeous.
I would not have guessed that you have only been spinning for a month, either.
