Plying question
I recently bought some fiber from an ebay seller. She emailed me to let me know the shipping calculator overcharged me, so she would be sending extra fiber! Yippee. She sent me two different colorways with just a couple ounces each. Since my spinning is still questionable I thought I might use these little bits as practice to get to my real goal of making some sock yarn from the fiber I bought.

So anyways here is my question. I spun up the orange one yesterday and it didn't even fill a bobbin....which I expected since it was only a couple ounces.... But now I don't know how to ply it. I am hoping that I don't need to put half the singles onto another bobbin but I am afraid that is what you are going to tell me....

So How do you ply this?
