eighty-third and eighty-fourth skeins
These are the eighty-third and eighty-fourth skeins I've spun. They are each 1 3/4 ounces and 115 yards. Well, 114 and 116 yards really, but who's counting. Blue Face Leicester wool from Gale's Art in the colour lapis. Spindle spun.
The yarn is 3 ply. I thought I'd measured out a full two ounces correctly on the digital scale, and there was considerable waste leftover so I probably did. Tried to spin each of the three singles to a consistent 40 wpi, but the leftovers mean I must have gone thinner with one of the spun singles.
You might remember the multi-coloured scarf I recently spun and knit from Gale's Art BFL in cocktail. This yarn is supposed to be like it but thinner. It is certainly thinner. It feels very different, less substantial.
