stream of consciousness

Hm. I wonder if you can navajo ply using a spindle.
*googles it*
Well, lookie here. Some blogger claims to have done it.
Looks cumbersome, but I can try it.
*plies*
Okay, this is really cumbersome.
*plies*
I can do it, but I don't think I ever want to do it again.
*plies and yelps a lot*
Why do people spin 50% more singles just for this? It kind of sucks.
*plies*
Okay, it *is* getting a bit easier.
But I'm still not doing it again until I have a wheel.
*If* I ever get a wheel, that is.

But...wow.
That's so me freakin' cool yarn.



With a quarter for scale:



(I'd totally do it again.)

Nice :)

Were you Navajo plying with a regular drop spindle or with a Navajo spindle?
I like Navajo plying on my wheel, but it does use a ton of yarn!

Very nice yarn. Very, very nice. I'm not yet coordinated enough to Navajo ply on my wheel, much less a spindle, so - good job!
