Tour de Fleece - Day 2

Just a very quick update from the spinning wheel this evening. I plied the first two yarns for my Sheep Heid. I tried to ply from both ends of the yarn, but that proved pretty tricky and there were a few tangles! So next time I shall spin half the yarn onto two separate bobbins, and ply from them. I saw on Ravelry that someone else was spinning different yarns onto two bobbins in sections, to make the best use of the bobbins, so I may well try that approach. I do have two rather lovely little skeins, each one about 50 yards, so there's more than enough for a Sheep Heid!!

I also finished spinning the merino/nylon blend that I'm planning to use for a pair of socks.

Will there be enough yardage? The proof of the pudding will be the plying. Call back tomorrow and see if I managed it! xxx

Those colours will be lovely for Sheep Heid, it's a gorgeous pattern, and is somewhere in my ever-expanding queue!
