Making Monday 7- Laceweight


This is the finest I have ever spun..
Proper, proper laceweight, not very thin fingering weight, but proper laceweight. It's been a rocky road making it this far, I somehow managed to ply the wrong way without realising (I have no idea how I didn't notice...), which meant I needed to reply the entire skein.
I still haven't worked out how many metres I had to ply twice, but the original braid of fibre was 100g, so I feel confident in saying there's a lot of yarn there!

The fibre was superwash merino I dyed at the start of my forays in to natural dyeing.

I'm already thinking about knitting Rock Island with it..

  1. Oh this is gorgeous spinning! And what a beautiful colour! You must be very proud :)

  2. I think Rock Island will be just perfect for the gorgeous yarn you have spun...

  3. That's just lovely. I'm still at the 'aspiring to double knitting' stage of spinning - can only dream of laceweight... and such a lovel colour, too!
