Spinning day

I made it to spinning group today despite a lingering migraine. I didn’t expect to get much done, but I did manage to ply off the remainder of my two bobbins of BFL singles. I now have 2 skeins plus a short skein of 2ply. It’s gorgeous soft stuff, really lovely. I now cannot wait to complete the job so that I can knit it all up. But what to make? I counted one skein and made it 236 yards. That looks like 500 yards or so from the 2 bobbins, and more than halfway left to go. What can I make from (let’s guess) 1,250 yards of fine-ish 2 ply?

Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
