I got together with Mo last weekend ago to do some spinning. I worked on some lovely handpainted superwash merino custom blend roving that I had purchased at The Black Lamb.

This evening I finally got the single chain-plied. I didn't want the colours to be blended or 'barber-poled'. Rather I wanted the colours to stay distinct.
Behold. 206 yards, 111g of worsted weight yarn.
Ain't it purty?

Now, what to knit with it? What to knit? What to knit?


  1. such beautiful spinning! Such lovely yarn!!! I'm so inspired by looking at your spinning!!!
    you could knit the 198 yards of heaven shawl with your lovely yarn!

  2. I've never chain-plied, but I am encouraged by everyone's examples. Though I love the look of the "barber pole" yarns, I'm not so crazy about how they knit up. Great job!
