That white bit at the bottom is the tie. Overall this yarn came out super springy and squishy, however its not a very soft yarn. I still have to measure, but there is enough to do some stripes or a small project.
The rest of this fiber, however, did not turn out so pretty. Apparently I have a hard time remembering which way I should be spinning, and even though halfway through I thought it looked a little funny, and I kept checking to make sure I was spinning opposite my singles, this happened.
The top is the first part after it broke, but toward the bottom you can see how it looks like... well, poop. That my friends is what happens when you ply the wrong way. I'm trying to take this as a learning experience, but it will stink to have to cut it. I'll just add the top section to the rest of it. No biggie.
I also did my first chain plying! (Excuse the really fluffy end and the gray ties)
I think this came out pretty good for my first time. It took a few loops before I had the hang of it, but now I think I will try to chain ply all my little sample balls from ITW.
2 out of 3 isn't too bad, right!?
