some more of the spinning I did

Fat Cats Knits merino fiber in buckaroo. I did what they suggested on the tag that came with the fiber to make it more tweedy. Separated it into 8 strips then using 2 strips of fiber (one flipped so the colors didn't match up)I spun it together. Then made it 2 ply. the color is more like tweed and less stripy this way :)


Also used some of my merino fiber. I tried really hard to make a chunky thick thin yarn. It was really awkward... I need more practice. But I think the yarn looks pretty regardless of how spazzy I felt while spinning it.
