Yarn Challenge Day 3

Tomorrow morning I am going to post about a couple of new batts that will be listed in the store and some cleaned cheviot fleece complete with pictures. Today, however, was a long day so you will get a picture of me spinning a yarn. A long... tedious yarn. I expect to be spinning this until I die.

This is 1/4 of a future cabled yarn. The theory is it will be plied with a dark purple single. The I will spin a light purple single and another black single that will be plied together. Then the two plied yarns will be plied against each other to become a cabled yarn. All for the purposes of matching this yarn and becoming the bottom and the straps to a knit (or maybe crocheted) purse. It's a lot of the work in the interim.
