Taking care of a weepy sick kid (pre-8 p.m.) and catching up on 24 (post-8 p.m.) aren’t really conductive to knitting or spinning…but I do have a little bit to show…

More merino from HPY. Very thick and thin — this was the first time I was trying to spin a thicker single, not intending to ply it. I’m still not sure what I should do…ply it, or steam it? Here’s what it looks like plied:

Another decision….ply the colors with themselves, or ply the brown and white together? Hmm.
