What advice would you give someone starting this project? Some people go up to a larger whorl when navajo plying but I don't. I think it makes the plies look like plump little pearls if the twist is ever so slightly tighter. I just treadle a little slower when plying as opposed to spinning the singles.

Your yarn is beautiful. I wish I could spin, but am really intimidated by it all. Great job.

Oh don't be! Just like any hobby it takes a bit of time to learn but once you get the hang of it and your fingers do what you want them to do, it becomes second nature. It's a very rewarding and addictive craft. I highly recommend it!! It's a wonderful thing to be able to knit, weave, crochet etc...with yarn you made yourself :-)
