Miracle Monday

I finished the first plying of the second set of singles! Now all I have to do is let them wait a few days and re-ply these two bobbins together and I will have cabled yarn. Yipppeee! One of the bobbins of two ply is obviously more full than the other one so when I run out of the first bobbin, I'll wind the rest of the second off on my ball winder and finish the cabling with the two ends of the one ball. That will give me one large skein and a small skein, but its not hard to join skeins in knitting. I'm so excited about being almost done with this. Finn is even excited about it, but then he's pretty much excited about anything and is very much in love with my bobbin box that I use as a Lazy Kate. It gets lots of kisses while I'm plying. I was originally planning on knitting a pair of socks (or two) with this yarn - I started with 8 ounces of fiber. I'm thinking about gloves now though. I really want to knit a pair of gloves and this cabled yarn should really hold up well. Of course, once I get the yarn finished and washed, it might tell me what it wants to be, too.

Okay, it was worth a shot! Do I really need to say how gorgeous it looks even before the second plying?
