525 yards of merino/bamboo/silk, 3oz on the nose.  It's really really thin on one end, and there is a section that is a bit heavier, but over all it's a lovely weight, that would probably work up nice on a size 1 or 2 knitting needle.  I started this yarn, intending it to be 3 ply, but 3 ply yarns are good for stitch definition, like when you are knitting cables, where 2 ply is best for nice open stitch patterns that lace knitting provides.  So 2 ply it is.  I've got 3 more oz to go, and considering this 3 oz took me the better part of 2012 to complete (mostly it just sat on the bobbin lonely, waiting to be plied) I might manage to complete it by new years day 2014!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I always learn so much from your posts. I think you should finish the other 3 oz and make something dazzling with it, soon! Just because! Yay!

I wish there wasn`t so much on my plate at the moment.  otherwise I`d do that!   First things first, finish homework and get workbook handed in.  i`m making great progress with that.

thank you! I spin on an Ashford Traveler.  i find drop spindles to not be effiecient for me, mostly because I have 3 small children, and dropping your spinning quickly on a drop spindle is impossible when someones decided to climb up the counter and the other pulls the chair away... LOL!
