Three birds - blending and spinning robin's breast colour

With my hand carders I blended three colours from Norwegian Wool to match the robin's breast.

Then I spun it on my spindle and wound it off onto my nostepinne to make a centre pull ball.
From this ball I formed a new two-strand ball by winding both ends (from the centre and from the outside of the ball) together onto the nostepinne.
From this ball, I plied the finished yarn. Now I'm ready to start weaving!
