Ready To Be Sent (Not The One I Will Use)




Two skeins of 70/30 Merino/Silk. One skein at 750 yds the other at 647 yds for a total of 1,397 yds spun at an average of 30-32 WPI. I say an average because it's not consistent enough to be an exact measure. I will not be knitting with this yarn because I will be sending it of to missalicefaye to knit with. Why you ask? Because I love to see her knitting, because I have tons of this fiber, and because I can. I'm still working on my own yarn and I'm half way through the second bobbin . I hope to be done in a week or so between my other activity's. Happy Spinning/Knitting To All!

Oh man, that is SO beautiful! Any idea what she plans to make with it?

Dear marlene,

I really don't know what she might have in mind. Once she knows how much yarn she's getting I think she will look through some patterns but if she wants to knit something that uses more I will just spin more :-)

Wow it's so pretty! I loooove that color green.

Dear hattie,

Yes, it is pretty but having already spun and knit one shawl with it and spun enough to give to someone else, I have to admit that I am quite tired of this particular fiber but still have lots of it left. I'm going to have my sister take some of it and spin it to make hats, scarves and fingerless mitts. That may eventually make a dent in all this fiber.

Wow, I aspire to such nice spin!
