Alpaca is plied

I sat out on the deck last evening, in the beautiful weather, plying the spindled alpaca. Finally, summer is here.

I ended up with 144 yards in 1 and 7/8 ounces. Roughly 1200 yards/pound. It's soft and fluffy, and it goes into the yarn basket. Once again, I have no project in mind for the yarn...

The hibiscus is blooming like crazy. There are 5 flowers on it this morning. I thought the hibiscus flowers only lasted a day, but a few of these have been open for three days. Girl of the House will be happy to see them when she returns from camp. (She chose the hibiscus for the deck.)

I'm loving the Hibiscus.

The plied yarn is gorgeous too! Did you do all of that on your drop spindle or did you ply with your wheel?

I've plied the white-ish yarn that I spun last night, but I'm thinking of collecting my handspun and making a blanket. Just my "first round" thoughts.
