It’s all finished!  This is 8 ounces of Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL/Tussah (75%/25%) roving in Rook-y.  I spun the singles on my Kromski Symphony (Giselle) using a 10:1 whorl at 40 wraps per inch.  I plied the singles into a 3-ply yarn on my Majacraft Rose (Arwen), using the jumbo bobbin and flyer.  I ended up with 813 yards of 16 wraps per inch yarn, which puts it at heavy fingering weight, light sport weight.  I don’t have definite plans for the yarn yet, but there’s enough there to knit a Featherweight cardigan.

It's just lovely! Some day I'll be able to spin an entire sweater's worth of yarn and have it be consistent. :)
