Some of the latest spins and plans for them:

600 yards of Shetland singles from Southern Cross Fibre, Club fiber “Island Paradise”. Currently knitting into a Limeade Fizz Shawl-a new pattern by the Sexy Knitter.

This is 200 yards of fat squishy yumminess:

It is mixed merino from BeeMiceElf in the club colorway “Beloved Bard”. I spun it into a chain plied 6 ply by holding 2 singles together as I plied. It is a nifty trick for making thicker yarn with thin singles. I think it is probably destined to be a hat or some squishy mittens.

I have become enamored of true 3 plies lately too.

Like this one in Southern Cross Fibre, “Paua” in Falkland, 310 yards. Destined for socks.

Finally, check out this one-it’s a chain ply Polworth, but it is one of my own dye jobs:
