Hawser Ply

I am done! Done done done! And I think it went pretty well overall. 8 oz of The Dyeing Arts superwash merino duos in Goblin Seas. I ended up with 360 yards of hawser 4 ply yarn.

I washed it and finished it yesterday, and then hung it out to dry. I couldn’t stop going outside to look at it, so bouncy and beautiful was this skein of amazing and unusual yarn.

I’d call it a smashing success.

In fact, I am almost done knitting the second drop stitch scarf, and I am fairly certain this yarn is going on the needles next. I’ve managed to even find a fabulous cowl pattern for it.

This whole expanding my spinning horizons really seems to be working for me!
