i want to spin up some of my stash before i go to MDSW, as i'm sort of running out of storage space for fiber. i had been hoarding this merino/cashmere that i got at the finger lakes fiber festival last year. i was nervous to spin it but i finally realized that i was being silly so i whipped it out and went to work.
it actually wasn't terribly difficult to spin. i spun it longdraw from the fold and the only tricky part was that it seemed to need a lot of twist to hold together. i wanted to ply last night but i made myself wait so that the singles could rest.
i only had 2oz so i'm not expecting a lot of yardage but i hope it's enough for a small shawl. i'm planning right now not to dye it. the creamy color is so pretty.
