It's clear, that's the point in hair, but you could use non-see-through ones, as well.

All Plied Up and No Where To Go

Sunny day!

I love these colors together.

I finally plied up two colorways of yarn that I've been working on. One is a bright watermelon-color explosion.

The other was from a batt called "Cloudy Day," by the woman who made it. But, I would probably call it "Really Sunny Day." It's bright yellow. It isn't my favorite color. Oddly, was my grandmother's favorite color.

I'm not sure what to do with either skein of yarn. I want to honor my Nana's memory, somehow, with the yellow one. It's 187 yards, which might be just enough for a smallish woven scarf. Time will have to tell.

I made plying a little easier by using plying bobbins. I also made using them a little easier by slipping tiny hair elastics onto the bobbins. I can then tuck the ends of singles under the elastic to hold them while I start the bobbin. I have no idea if anyone else does this, but I love it! They come in bags of over 100, so I don't have to worry if I lose or break 1 or 20 of them.
