Out of Practice

Both at blogging and at spinning.

This little test hank is navajo-plied Blue Faced Leicester Top, Color Plum Toast by Frabjous Fibers. I bought it at Wisconsin Sheep and Wool in Sept '09 and dug it out when I went rummaging for something fun to spin. I definitely had some issues (singles broke a few times while plying. Grrr) but on the whole I like it. I think the rest of the fiber will be fun to spin and make a luscious yarn.
