Raggedy Anne part 2

Awhile back I spun my first yarn. It was a beautiful brilliant red top merino. Being a complete noob, I didn't realise that it is okay if you overspin your yarn and unspun a lot of it . Needless to say, it was felty looking and ugly.

Now that I have a couple more skeins under my belt, not to mention the awesome new spindle, I took it upon myself to "fix" the yarn.

I spun about 50 grams of yarn, made an Andean bracelet on Justin's recommendation, and plied it to itself.

Here is the old Raggedy Anne (before I untwisted it):

Here is the new, plied, Raggedy Anne:
