Today looks much like yesterday did. Dreary.

And despite plans to knit yesterday, I didn't. I did some spinning instead.

And then, at 11:30 last night, I decided that I MUST go ahead and ply it as well. So I wound it around my hand, as referenced here.

And I slipped the "ring" off and was ready to ply.

When I was finished, an hour later, I had appoxiamately 30 yards of yarn and about 2 to 3 yards of yarn vomit.

I was also too tired to remember to take more pictures of the process. I am fairly happy with the yarn I made, but I still need to set the twist in it to know for sure. I made a point of trying to be more consistent and a touch thinner this time, and twisted the yarn a lot more while plying as well.

As a curious side note, I was listening to Beyond Band of Brothers on audiobook. It's quite good.

The color of the yarn looks like the shot of the weather you posted - neat! Great job!

I'll have to look up the Beyond Band of Brothers - I rented the whole Band of Brothers series and loved it!
