Are you tired of seeing yarn?

Another day of spinning show and tell!  (I know....I know....I just get started and can't stop.  I've been staying up late just to see what it will look like plyed)  And to give you a time frame, this was spun last Tuesday!

This is some mystery fiber that came with my wheel.  I must say it spun up wonderfully though...and is my most consistent work to date.

I did a 3 ply...I like the smoothness I get with a 3 ply versus a 2 ply.  The two skeins are about 5 ounces and 262 yards.  (So I think in the end I will have 7-8 oz and 400 yards)  I have just a little more to ply and will have a full third skein.  I love watching how the colors of the fiber mix when you spin.  I guess I should have taken a pic of the fiber before starting....I'll try to be better next time!

I must admit....the grey makes me think of you mom!
