Handspun: Mystery Batt!

Maybe it's a little weird to call handspun a FO - but it sure feels like an accomplishment, so why the heck not treat it like one!.

This turned into 270 yards of a 3-ply worsted weight yarn (about 7 ounces), spun on my Majacraft Rose. This is my first Navajo ply - interesting technique!!! Even though it's a simple principle, the mechanics take some getting used to. I found this video to be incredibly helpful in getting the technique figured out. It was very slow going at first (and I had to take my wheel down a ratio) but I got it! I'm so pleased with the finished yarn - the plying is far more consistent on this one than my previous attempts. So excited to knit or crochet this into something!
