From the time I first saw the Harlequin Girl batt from my Phat Fiber box, I knew it would be my first spin from the October Box. But how to spin it. It was a generous 1/2 oz sample, but still not enough to make much of a project from. I thought I'd do what I usually do and spin it thin and make a two or three ply from it. But then, from somewhere in the back of my brain, a little idea tried to overcome my OCD side and suggested a thick and thin yarn plied with thread..
The whole time I spun this it just felt wrong. The whole time I plied this it just felt strange. I soaked it and thwacked it and dried it, still strange and wrong. When B saw this she said, "Whoa! That is SO not you!".
I love it. I just wish I'd raided B's bead stash first! My technique for this type of yarn needs some work, but for a first try I though it was good enough to post! But just so my OCD side wouldn't take a complete fit, I spun up a teensy bit of the batt thin and three plied it. Here is 12 inches of conservative yarn. I love it, too.
