I’ve been working on this one forever. Seriously. There’s been some of this yarn on spindles basically all year long. But it was spinning so fine that I just had a hard time concentrating on getting it finished. However, I took it with me to New Mexico and found myself spinning it as I was wandering around Canyon Road in Santa Fe. And then I just kept spinning at it because I wanted to finish.
I now have 685 yards of laceweight 3 ply. The fiber is merino/silk from Julie Spins, and it is old old old! But so gorgeous and so so soft and it just shines!
It really did turn out even better than expected. The plying itself took forever and I became quite frustrated, but it is SO gorgeous that it is now worth it completely!

ooooooh it is really lovely. What are you planning to do with it? Deciding how to use it would be the hardest part for me! 🙂
I know I keep saying this to you but I’m sure you can’t hear it enough: It is stunning and so beautiful. Great job and well worth the wait on this long project! I can’t wait to see what you do with it next. You always pick such wonderful colors.
Wow. That is some serious spinning time!!! But so gorgeous!!
