They say you are never too old to learn something new. And though I don’t know who “they” are… I guess they are right ‘cuz I did learn something new. And it was taught to me by a young whipper snapper by name of Melissa at http://www.rainydayart.etsy.com Melissa taught me to Navajo Ply.
Learning to Navajo Ply has been on my to do list for a couple of months. Ever since I bought a really cool roving that I was told would make a self striping yarn if it was Navajo Plyed. I tried to learn on my own from the description of a friend…. but I practically tied myself to my spinning wheel with the tangled mess I made.
Here is the skein that Melissa taught me on. Not bad, but that is because she did most of it.
Then I went home and tried it on the cool self-striping roving and here is what I did. This yarn is for sale at www.yarntospin.etsy.com
Now I’m thinking about taking all my Navajo Churro fleeces and Navajo Plying them so I can weave them on a Navajo Loom.
Thank You Melissa!
