Sigh


I just love this colorway so much. I really want to learn how to Navajo ply so that I can keep the colorway's stripes consistent. If I do a 2-ply or a 3-ply, that will mix the colors up. I still might save it for when I've learned how to Navajo ply. Does anyone have a good recommendation for how to learn? Any good books or other resources?

Those colors are gorgeous, and your spinning is so even! Clearly, you are meant to make yarn.

I learned by watching this video on youtube. It's kind of cheesy but she breaks it down. It is really easy once you get the hang of it. If you didn't want to "mess" this one up you could always try and navajo ply a different roving maybe like 2 oz of something you have laying around and practice on that. Here is the link...good luck I can't wait to see how it turns out!
