A mix of spinning another Weaving the Landscape blend and plying the Merino d’Arles. The Weaving the Landscape blend was a joy to spin; the plying not so much. 

 I’m still very much a beginner spinner and plying is one of the techniques I’m not so comfortable with. Using a lazy kate certainly helps with tensioning and control, but I find once I’ve started plying stopping is almost impossible. If I do, I’m soon trying to untangle apile of self-plied yarn
