Pics from this weekend. But first: thanks for the comments! They seem to be functioning fine now, so as long as I don’t start getting spam comments, I think I’ll leave the settings as they are.
First, the merino that was awful to spin but is very pretty:
I plied a third of it with the remaining natural alpaca I had on the bobbin, and the rest with itself.
I’m not in love with the merino/alpaca, but it is very soft, and the two yarns could definitely be used together in a project. The new Cast On magazine has an article about using multiple yarns together in one project that is quite cool.
