122 yards 50% Merino 50% Tencel 3 ply
12 WPI, worsted weight yarn
I spun this from 3 irish girls roving. I was looking to work for a bit heavier weight yarn rather than the thin stuff I can’t help but create. I managed, but it was a struggle! I have to constantly watch myself when trying to create a thicker yarn, it makes for a rather tense spinning experience.
I’ve been working with fiber this weekend, but barely knitting. There was just so much else to do. Additionally, I vowed to read a book while J is overseas. And, well, since I still haven’t read the last Harry Potter, I borrowed it from Sarah and plowed through half of it this weekend. Yes, when I read, I read just like I knit.
And finally, if you remember last month I received the most beautiful fiber from my swap partner. I’ve begun to spin it, and it is spinning like a dream. I have decided that I just love batts! I will spin the wool and ply it with the silk. And then I have plans for it! No…you can’t have it! LOL
