Notes

first attempt at fractal spinning. split in half lengthwise, then that into 4 chunks (numbered 1-4). split second half into 4 lengthwise chunks (numbered 5-8). 2 Plied with one from each number range (1 and 5, and so on) to get dramatic barber polling and a somewhat interesting longer color flow throughout as well. This probably works better when there are no repeats to the color in the original fiber, but for my first try, I am pleased.

3 smaller skeins turned into one big cake with slip knots in between. 225yd/70g, 310yd/98g, 158yd/56g.

the mini is the remaining of the lengthwise chunks into a chain plied bit.
