Barberpole quartet

I so enjoyed lining up my 4 singles of FoxyMaple in the espresso set I bought on a special outing with my best friend Bob 16 years ago:

This is how I stored all my singles from specific colourways throughout the Tour de Fleece, one after another as they were finished so I would know to ply 1 with 3, and 2 with 4, the better to even out any gauge changes.  I don't know how I never noticed what was obvious after I'd taken that picture and bagged the singles with their appropriate mates.

Not sure I want that particular sugar in my tea.

In unrelated news, I spent last evening spinning and then plying the brown fiber I was obsessing about yesterday.  It was awesome.  And typing that reminds me I gotta go get it out of its bath so it's dry and wound in time for Monday's KAL start!

Hi Mary, have you ever ordered from They specialize in yarn that "treads lightly on our planet." I found out about them from the magazine, "Mary Jane's Farm."
