So first I took all the little balls of yarn, and spliced them together to form a huge plying ball.

Then I chain-plied them which means you make very big loops like crochet chains, and twist those in the opposite direction of how you spun them. I managed to cram all 108 grams of plied yarn onto the spindle (I put the tiny spindle into the pictures for size):

This is how the cob on the spindle looked after I pulled the spindle out:

And this is how the yarn looked after I skeined it:

I hope this makes your day a little brighter just like it makes mine every time I look at it.
