You go, girl!!! Plying is a little harder than spinning singles, but well worth it, don't you think? And a 3-ply makes a "rounder" yarn than a 2 ply and will hide even more irregularities.

(If you have an Ashford Niddy Noddy, it makes a 5 ft skein, so, multipy the number of strands by 5 ft. then divide by 3 to get yardage.)

Pictures?
