3 ply yarn

I finished spinning my sample pieces of cotton.  There were three different colors.  I decided to wind them together as a three ply.  To do that I put the three bobbins on the Lazy Kate and used my drop spindle (normally used for wool to spin together).

I was afraid that the greenish color would make the yarn look bad.  But the white and tan offset it and it created a very natural blend.  There isn't much here so I figured that I might crochet a doily.  I will make it as large as the yarn will allow.  When I am done with it, I will  have a keepsake that includes the first cotton that I hand spun.  It sounds like a good idea to me.  I ran out of the greenish color (on the right) before the other two colors. I ordered 16 ounces of green cotton.  I will spin enough of it to finish 3-plying the other two colors.  I can't wait to start crocheting.
