It was weird at 1st, but I was also watching a funny show (mighty boosh live) and cracking up, which made it hard to focus. In the end my nice, smooth single became a measly 63 yds of kind of ugly yarn, but I will keep working at it!

I'm sooo afraid to navajo ply.  I don't want to waste any yarn on practice LOL  My measly stash is much to small for experimenting!

Nice choice. ;]



I've navajo plied twice, both on a spindle obviously which as far as I can tell seems like it would be much more tricky than on a wheel (my chains were MUCH smaller than you'd do on a wheel)...my results have been okay, my only problem is sometimes you can see where the chain is made (it sticks out a little bit? not smoothly twisted with everything else....eh, if you've seen it you know what I'm talking about). Other than that I think they turned out really good considering I'm pretty new at this.

Anyway, I say just go for it. If you don't try it you'll never know!
