FO Friday- Pink and purple handspun

More singles spun at craft shows, neither of these seemed large enough to warrant their own FO Friday post, so I have put them in together. Both were leftovers from dyeing, wheel spun and plied.

The pink was an attempt at spinning thicker, it went ok, but I struggle to get thick singles, they naturally go so fine!

Both were handy plied using the Knitty technique (variation on Andean plying). This technique is great for using up every bit of a single.
Not sure what these two skeins will make. they may need to be paired with other yarn for enough to make a project. The colours of the two go quite well together, but they are different yarn weights.
