Plying without (water) wings

Here's my skein for the Rare Breeds show. Plied without the aid of an experienced spinner at my side. Not sure how it stacks up technically, but it looks OK to me, so that's all that matters. It's 40 yards, tied in 4 places, and weighs less than 2ozs as required. You're supposed to wash it to set the twist. I'm really nervous about this though in case I muck it all up and it goes frizzy.

Your skein looks great!!!

You asked me on my blog about plying with spindles. I don't have a lazy kate, and I only have have one spindle so it was a little awkward. I plied with two balls of yarn onto my spindle and managed. I am going to get some more spindles and a lazy kate for next time.
