My thing yesterday was a straight worsted weight yarn in chocolate brown wool. Normally I only do 2 ply yarns, which, with the way I spin results in a sport weight yarn suitable for #2-4 needles. Last Sunday, I got a new lazy kate that allows me to use 3 bobbins at once, so I decided to ply 3 strands and make a worsted weight yarn.

It looks pretty even, despite the fact that my wheel probably needs to be oiled AGAIN, and I think I may need to add some kind of tensioning element to my lazy Kate...

My Papa has requested a heavy wool cardigan, so once I've knocked out enough, this is the yarn that I will use for that project.
