First attempt at Navajo Plying! ("The Burrow" Part Deux!)

Here's half of the fiber spun super-fine on my Ashford. (Quarter for scale)
Navajo Plied on bobbin- a little over-plied and the irregularites in the singles are kind of amplified by this method of plying, but I think it's pretty good for my first try at a new technique!
Just for a little more eye-candy- on the winder (see all of the lovely color variations? LOVE how Navajo plying keeps the color sequences intact but still blends them well!)
And finally- skeined. (Once I spin the second half I'll soak and smack to set the twist!)

Amy your navajo plying looks great. I just gave this a try this week too. I love the way it keeps the color bands together with some gradual blending between colors. Happy Holidays -- can't wait to see your "secret" finished object!
