And then there was yarn ...

Following on smoothly from my last post (where that time went I do not know!), there was more spinning of my blue dyed roving.

The bobbin filled up and don't they look lovely together.


The plying began ...

and went on and on and on ...

I was so busy I didn't get around to photographing any more of it on the bobbins.

I then wound it off onto the niddy noddy, which also went on and on and on ...

The finished yarn, which I am very pleased with. Approximately Sports weight to DK weight (will see after a finishing wash) and approximately 650 yards. The search is on for the perfect project, I may need to add a little of something else, we shall have to wait and see.

Linking up again with Linda's Creative Friday as a follow up to my last link up of the dyeing of the blue roving.


  1. Beautiful! I love how all those colours have worked together. Can't wait to see what project you decide to use it for. And I imagine you must have spent most of this week either spinning or plying!!

    1. Thank you x
      Still searching for the right project. Yes I have spent much the this week on the wheel. Most bobbins are empty now awaiting the start of the Tour de Fleece today which I've jumped in to take part in - lots more spinning for me for the next 3 weeks - woo hoo!
      (oh and a little fleece acquiring ;-))

  2. I loved the colors separately...and just as much plied together. So pretty!

    1. Yes me too, it was interesting seeing the change from singles to plied too.
      Thank you x

  3. How perfectly lovely! Beautiful colours.

  4. Ooh, that is beautiful xxx
