*** Rainbow Sprinkles ***

Another scorching day in Sydney - perfect weather to be plying pure wool yarn for winter woollies!!! (???)

I had dyed some pure finn combed top a while ago, and today spun a single on to my *#%&? Majacraft plying bobbin. I then wound the single into a ball before plying from both ends of the ball, holding the ball in my left hand and guiding the plying with my right hand. I'm happy with the results and the technique, which I hadn't tried before.

Lots of lolly colours - artificial colours and flavours? It is "Rainbow Sprinkles" Handspun Yarn.

Pure genius and simple logic to ply that way! I love it! And the result is so pretty...what a great idea!

Absolutely gorgeous colours, and the finished ply looks great!
