I'm still just playing with roving I have left over from needle felting. Trying to get some techniques down before I invest in anything really nice. Definitely better than my first attempt! (Sorry, my camera sucks and there's no sun today.)

Day 2, Plying with thread:

Denim blue with metallic thread, yellow with green thread.

Some carroty orange plied with red thread, still on the niddy noddy.

Day 3, Plying singles:

Purple with purple. The skein doesn't seem to want to twist at all so I guess it must be pretty well balanced?

My spindle was unfinished and would catch on my clothes sometimes so I decided to sand it down and paint & seal it. Sadly I didn't think far enough ahead to realise I wouldn't be able to use it for at least a day! Black with green flames - I'm pretty sure it's going to spin faster now.   Wink

Any advice or suggestions are more than welcome!

oh yes, it will definitely spin faster. It needs racing stripes up the sides! Cheesy
