And the half bobbin of plain blue singles leftover, plus a curiosity to try out navajo plying, become this.

Soft merino top was probably not the best choice of fibre for my first attempt at this technique, but I kind of got the hang of it and the resulting yarn is definitely knit-able. More practice required on a sturdier-spun single.

The Blue: Atlantic Merino Top 100g from Ewe give me the knits!

The Multi: Myers BFL/Bamboo 50/50 100g from Ewe give me the knits!

Wheeeeee - looks great (I have a very similarly coloured roving like the first one there too).
