Finished Yarn

DSC03129
This is 600 yards of light fingering weight Merino and Silk two ply. I was originally planning on using it for the Aeolian Shawl, and I think it would work well, but I'm not sure now if that's what I want to do with it - not that I have any other plans for it at this point.

I did a better job on the singles for this yarn than on the previous batch of handspun (the Polwarth), but I spun this in a more worsted style and the Polwarth was spun semi-woolen. I've done more worsted spinning than woolen spinning so I'm more comfortable with spinning this way. I still need to spend some time practicing so I can get back to my previous consistency, but I'm much happier with this yarn.

I'm going to spend some time reviewing my spinning books and the notes from the class I took from Judith Mackenzie Mc Cuin* and then I'll go stash diving and find something to practice spinning.

*By the way, her new book The Intentional Spinner contains pretty much everything she teaches in her 3 day class, so if you can't take the class from her (or even if you have), you should get this book. Really, if you spin at all you should own this book - it's just that good.

It's beautiful! I aspire to your skills. Still spinning "novelty" yarn.
