I am being very indecisive about what to spin next. I have half a bobbin of lovely Tahiti coloured Merino, Soy & Bamboo Roving already spun and could spin the other 50g of that.

I can't decide whether to spin the rest on another bobbin and ply it with itself or get something else to ply with it.
P&M sell some lovely gold merino/ silk so I'm thinking I may get some of that to ply with it .....

so will probably spin something else in the meantime. Like this merino from All Spun Up

I'm going to try to get 400m out of 4oz so I can make socks out of this too. Saying that, I actually like thick socks so maybe I should spin it thicker and ply with something else. Now I'm never going to get this one spun either while I ruminate.

I've made a test skein with my chocolate alpaca half two ply and half navajo plyed so need to wash and inspect it before I do any more. Really don't know whether I have it in me to hand card a whole bin bag of alpaca though.
We learning how to wash fleece at Spinning Guild on Saturday so that should be fun.
