 Thank you mullerslanefarm, Jane Doe, and MonkeyThumb..
the_bees_knees.. as far as the striping.. it didn't turn out like I wanted it to.. I had dyed a long strip of roving in large segments of colors .. then I tried to split it into 6 equal strips.. and then spun 2 spools in the same color sequence.. but it didn't work out as I expected.. and some of sections ended up having 2 different color yarns plied together instead of being 2 singles the same color.. It's not navajo plied..

Thanks for sharing your technique! I think the irregularity of it looks nice. I mean, if it's perfect, why do it by hand? (Or is that just me making myself feel better when nothing I handmake comes out perfectly... A question for the ages.)
