It’s been more than 4 years, but I’ve actually finished! I finally finished spinning some yarn!
Actually, I finally finished spinning a LOT of yarn. (I think it was about 300 yards of worsted, though I can’t find where I wrote down the yardage… I guess I’ll have to measure it again… ugh! Suffice it to say, it’s a good amount. All skeined up, it’s the size of a large loaf of bread.)
And, y’all, it’s SO pretty!
It’s all sorts of beautiful shades of purple, teal, turquoise and blue, with variations in shininess and depth of color. I managed to do a 3-ply, which means that (mostly) every part of the yarn has 3 different-colored plies. So fun! And not something that you can find easily in shops.
The yarn is soft and squishy, a nice thick worsted (ish). I’ll be honest, it’s not perfect (it’s not perfectly even, and it’s a little over-spun). But it’s hand-made! Isn’t that the point?
Now I gotta admit- I’m thinking about getting another hank of fiber and spending the next 3-5 years making it into yarn.
Also, now I have to decide what to make with this yarn…. choices, choices!
