the (almost) never-ending project has ended!

I was starting to feel like I had been spinning this forever but it's finally done.
Bee Mice Elf Moon Lanterns (September Club)
50% silk, 30% SW Merino, 20% sea silk

The singles were 70 wpi. I Navajo-plied them on the Roberta and the yarn measures 36 wpi and weighs 209 g. I'm sure glad that I had the Roberta for the plying or my knees would have been totally wrecked after that session!

My yarn meter glitched while I was skeining it off the bobbin so I don't know the yardage but it's a lot. I'm going to have to research some shawl patterns to use this pretty yarn.

One more sleep until puppy time!

Wow- that sure is wonderful lace yarn! I can't believe the 70WPI!!!
How were you able to navajo ply without it breaking all the time?

LOVE this yarn, Susan. Just, why are you taking a spinning class? Your yarn is already perfect, IMHO!!
