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!

Gorgeous and so smooshy looking!
Explained in my first Hawser Ply blog post:
It’s beautiful! I want to see how it knits up, I’m so curious!
Well, I’ve already picked out a pattern and wound the skein, so you are in luck. I couldn’t help myself!
This Hawser has been an interesting thing to read about. That finished yarn will be super delightful to knit with!
