Ludicrouslouisa -- your yarns look great!  That alpaca top is really pretty.  I'm also one who doesn't mind breaking a few rules.  If you do what feels natural and like the results, then in my opinion there is no "right" or "wrong" about it!  The main thing to remember is that you ply in the reverse direction that you spun, so just remember which way you spun it.  Spinning is really fun, and once you've tried one thing the ideas just start flowing!

I'm also one who hates losing yardage to plying, which is why thus far when I've plied I've done it with sewing thread or crochet thread.  I keep telling myself I'll ply two handspun yarns together.  I'm sure I will but for now singles or plying with thread has been my way of doing things.
