March spinning challenge - to eleven

So, I'm a bit late in putting this up, but you should be used to it by now... Turns out I completed my 10 yarns for March about an hour shy of midnight with an eleventh yarn.

50% superwash merino, 50% tencel
#8 - 50% superwash merino, 50% tencel, about 2 oz

targhee, tencel, sw merino
#9 - one ply targhee, one ply tencel/sw merino about 5.5 oz

#10 - merino, about 4 oz, from pseudorolags*
scrap yarn
#11 - yarn made up of single ply leftovers, about 4 oz


*psuedorolags were the focus of one of the articles in the most recent issue of Spin-Off. Basically, you take a fiber preparation where the fibers are already lined up and make them into small rolags with your hands.

I did it this way:

merino batt
1. take a batt

making pseudorolags
2. tear bits off and roll up

pseudorolags all together
3. step back and admire

And then spin!
