I did a bit of “test plying” using the Navajo technique, but the result was bulkier than I wanted it to be, so I switched back the basic method of plying with two singles.

After giving it a good look after taking the photo, I really wasn’t happy with a couple of things, how loose the fabric was, for one.  After frogging and starting over and going down a couple of needle sizes, from a size 8 to a 6, I’m much happier with it. 🙂
