Tour de Fleece Days 1 & 2

Day 1 and 2 of the Tour was a finish this project.

I have 375 grams of Skein Merino Silk tto spin. I had spun nearly 125 in singles. This fibre was not what I had first thought there was way more white and I had to rethink my plan.

Seeking advice from the likes of 1funkyknitwit and a few others I decided to try plying the finished singles. I have a couple of cones of commercial heavy lace/light baby weight yarn.

Day 1 involved just a little bit of spinning with just the first 125g completed as singles

Day 2 I managed to spin 125g of singles and ply it completing the second 125g on Day 3.

So the above became this - thick and thin and at the moment about 500metres of it with another 125g still to spin.

This actually looks quite good Jody, considering there was so much white in it. I really like how you've spun it thick and thin and your choice of lace and colour to ply it with works very well :D

Bring tomorrow pretty please ;D want a closer inspection...ehhehe
I give it a thumbs up so far !
