More Finished Spinning

The roving for this yarn was gifted to me by a friend who decided that spinning was not for her.  It was just a little bit and I'd originally decided I'd try to drop spindle again.  I just don't have the patience or the coordination.  Spinning on the wheel was much easier for me.

Since I had so little of it, I decided to try to chain ply it.  This was a first for me and it was much easier than I thought it would be.  I love this yarn.  It's the most like yarn shop yarn.  It's nice and sproingy and the stitch definition is to die for.  Since this was stuck in a bag by itself, I have no idea  the fiber content.  I know that since a chain plied yarn is a true 3 ply it is rounder.  This will not be the last time I chain ply.  I just wish I had a gradient braid to try.  The final count is 48 yards, not enough to do a lot with but maybe I can get a pair of hand warmers.

I am so completely impressed. It took me years to figure out chain plying and mine is still on the wonky side. That really is gorgeous and you are so right about a gradient. I would love to see what you could do with that.
