It didn’t go easily for me initially, but I did manage to teach myself how to ply on a support spindle. It took about 24 hours total to learn. Rather than trying to spin my spindle the other way with my right hand, I just decided to switch to spinning it with my left hand, using the same motions that came naturally to my right hand. This worked fairly effectively for me.
I now have a full skein of yarn from vacation, though I cannot yet tell you the yardage or weight. I still need to wash and finish these. I will post yardage and an after wash picture when that happens. Until then:
