And yes, it has finished. Let me remind you of my goal:
To spin 500g of this:
I didn't. I spun 300g. Which is fine. Its ok. I didn't want to push myself, and I didn't want to stop knitting/crocheting either. Or just generally playing on my iPhone (OMG Bubbles!!!).
There they are, the 6 bobbins of singles. Just sitting and looking rather pretty.
A close up of the first skein. Mmmm plied goodness (plied whilst watching various Carry On movies - good times when the OH is away!).
Three skeins. All plied. Turned out a bit thicker than what I wanted for the Veil of Isis shawl, and shall instead (hopefully anyway) become Mythos from the latest issue of Knitty. The skeins have been washed and dried, and are a light fingering weight, and together... 900 yards. Booyah.
