and so I spin

Really, I should be catching up on my blog reading...

Instead, this yarn has finally been plied.

It began as 2 ounces of Angora, Merino, and Silk from Susan's Spinning Bunny in Tamarack and Spruce and ended up being 617 yards of lace(?) weight. Seriously, I thought it would n-e-v-e-r be finished!

Overall, I am pleased with the outcome. Things were learned and there are questions to ask of Beth if there is ever time for another lesson.

Chris gifted me this fabulous merino roving and it is calling to be spun...yet, it is coveted. I still find it difficult to start spinning my 'good stuff'. I keep waiting until my mad spinning skills kick in.

There is some Northern Lights in there and that will probably go on the wheel, not the Northern Lights gifted to me by Lisa. I'm waiting until I get really good before getting that out!

*whining* How come I can't spin lace weight??!!

Your yarn is beautiful! Looks like you are good enough for the "good stuff" to me.

Oh my gosh! I am soooo jealous of that laceweight. I haven't mastered that yet.

One of these days, I NEED to get some Chris roving!
