Navajo Plying

I did it! I'm soooo excited!....


I've been hearing about Navajo plying for a few months now. I was curious about it and wanted to learn how to do it. So, I've been watching videos on YouTube about it (isn't YouTube great?!). The Yarn Wench video was the most helpful. Last night I gave it a whirl and...I did it! It was soooo much fun! I used some singles yarn I already had on my bobbins. The first bobbin went fine and the second one went even better. I felt like I was finding a rhythm by the end of it. I love the feel of it the yarn. It seems like it has more body and life than my two ply yarns. I really want to do it more. So, I'm figuring out a project to spin for so I can get started.
