It’s about time

I’ve finally finished spinning 4 oz. merino which has been sitting on my wheel for months. I can’t tell you why I am not spinning as much as I used to, but I know that it has really taken a back seat to my knitting lately.

I received this merino from a swap, it is subtly shaded rather than crazy color changes.  Because of that, I decided to make this more of a laceweight than a fingering weight yarn.  It is 2 ply, 18 WPI.  I have 459 yards of this, which is quite a good amount.

I think the next project should be a thicker yarn.
