Navajo plying on the spindle

I'm so pleased. I had a long work day, having to return downtown for an event that didn't end until after 8 pm.

So after supper we settled down to listen to two new cd's of British/Welsh choral music while I finished spinning some green roving I'd dyed quite funkily last year with easter egg dye. The greens ranged from kelly to pale pastel with tinges of olive and yellow. Not my favorite. To avoid creating barber pole yarn, not suited to the wide range of shades, I decided to try my first spindling Navajo plying. I've only done it before on the spinning wheel.
