ninety-third and ninety-fourth skeins

First skein is 2 1/2 ounces and 106 yards, second skein is 2 ounces and 84 yards.  Five strands plied together.  Ecru Blue Face Leicester wool, spun as about 40 wpi single strands.  Final diameter of the yarn ranges from 10-14 wpi, which is what I hoped for.  The yarn is very round, as you can see in the closeup.  Lost half an ounce to waste when plying since one bobbin ran out before the others.

I ran each strand through a hole in the perforated plastic top of a spice jar lid.  Plying these would have been impossible otherwise; the strands kept catching each other.
