Fire on the Mountain

We've been spinning this up. It's a Sheep2Shoe kit from BMFA. This is what the sock yarn really looks like. The first three photos are of the same skein. I tryed Navajo plying it. It was so tightly twisted that I thought it was ruined. Once we got it into a bath and hanging with weights, it looks pretty good!










These two sets I plyed regularly. I think all three came out pretty close to the same weight, maybe a heavy worsted.

Wow, that's gorgeous! And your spinning looks great, too. Navajo plying took a bit of getting used to, but once I "got" it, I wouldn't give it up--if for nothing else, the fact that I don't have uneven amounts of yarn on two different spools to work with.

So pretty! I love the fire on the mountain colorway. I'm sure regretting not buying one of these kits at Eugene!

That looks great! What do you think it will become? I think I'll have to look for this one at OFFF. I haven't started the one I bought at Black Sheep yet.
