It's finally here!
I'm especially impressed with the amount of light needed to capture a clear picture. Smartphones, as you probably know, have itty bitty little lenses and basically need full sunlight to get a clear shot. My real camera can shoot a picture in a dark hallway with minimal blur. I'm impressed!
The first thing I shot a picture of was the yarn I was working on this week!
With this yarn, I am thinking I'd like to learn to Navajo ply because I would like to play with smooth color changes in the future. There are a wealth of videos on Youtube for this technique (and, I'm sure, some text-based tutorials) but I found this one the most helpful because everything is clearly visible and explained slowly at first. She also does some damage control by explaining what to do if it breaks.
Also, when learning about the benefits of Navajo plying, particularly the fact that it keeps the colors together in color changing yarn, I had a question that might be silly. I'm still a little fuzzy on the physics of spinning.
If I finish and/or dye a yarn, can I then decide to ply it later, or will I need to spin from dyed fiber if I plan on plying?
I would just expect the relaxed twist after finishing or dyeing would prevent the yarn from holding together, but I'm not sure!
