Attention...Attention...


Yes, I actually have a FO to post about...can you believe it? Well, it only took me 14 months to finish...why? Geez--I don't know!

This is more of David Simpson's fiber, I seriously wish you all could have the opportunity to spin this fiber...he's so meticulous the finished product it's simply amazing to spin.


This is called "Silk Road" 80% merino--20% silk, the pictures do the coloring no justice at all.



Specs:
3.20 ozs
22 wpi
2 ply laceweight
yardage?? I have no idea...I got tired of counting wraps on the niddy noddy! It's A LOT!! If I were to guess I'd think that there's about 1200 or so? I just know that I spun...and spun and spun...then I plied and plied and plied for what seemed like forever!!

Now I look at my stash and say NEXT!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

Same here. I'm not entirely sure how much yardage I had on my last laceweight. It's just too much trouble to count, or I'm too scattered to count that high!

Beautiful though...

So pretty!!! I hate having to figure out the yardage! I wish I had one of those counters!
