This is partly due to the desire to keep colors together and spin gradient yarn plus work on my chain plying technique. The first yarn is my BiFrost. I am extremely pleased with this yarn. 6oz of 100% BFL that I dyed. I ended up with 362 yards of 3ply yarn with a 13WPI measurement. Very pleased, indeed.
The next yar i s my Sunshine Sugar. This is my favorite Suri Alpaca/Merino/Silk blend from my herd. I purposely wanted a thicker yarn so I had to think about making those singles a steady even weight. I have to say, that was a struggle because I wanted to spin thin. This yarn ended up being 310 yards of 2ply at 9WPI from 7oz.
I have also been crazy trying to finish my Adirondack Shawl. My goal was to have it completed and blocked for YarnCon. I have a feeling I will be blocking it in my hotel room tonight. I'm so close to having it finished.
