Monet’s Garden

Monet's Garden Wool/Silk SkeinA work related crisis on Sunday kept me close to my cell phone and my computer. With lots of what I call “hurry up and wait” time on my hands, I finished plying the Monet’s Garden wool/silk that I had been spinning. As much as I love this blend and colorway, it felt as if I’ve been spinning this forever. I was relieved when I finally finished it. (I’ve been spinning the singles on and off for about 3-4 weeks.)

There you have it. Slightly more than 1,000 yards / 8 oz. of 2-ply yarn at 20 wpi. Although most conversion charts list this as lace weight, I think it’s more like a fingering weight yarn. But, it’s enough to give me pause about knitting a top with it. That’s an awful lot of small gauge knitting.

Posting might be a bit sparse in the next while, because work has gotten a wee bit interesting. It’s not that I’m not doing fiber related work, but I may not have the opportunity to take pictures, download, cull, and write.
