I'm pretty happy with my first shot at Navajo plying (also my first time plying on my wheel). By the end of the bobbin, the hand motions became pretty automatic. Sometimes I had trouble keeping the tension on the strands of the loops so they wouldn't ply back on themselves. If I had a real lazy kate to get more distance between the bobbin and my hands it might help. Anyway, I love getting the rounded look of a 3-ply while keeping the color changes in the single. Alden Amos calls Navajo plying "more of a stunt than a technique," but who cares? The big question is what to do with it. It's only about 60 yards.
