The first handspun skein of yarn that I'm actually happy with it! We're also approaching the kind of thickness of yarn that I can imagine doing something with. It's about 310 meters out of 116 grams of fiber, which sounds thicker than it looks, probably due to the density of it.
There was a lot of progress made during the several days of spinning and then plying this yarn, and the first ply was overspun in places, with more unevenness in thickness than the second ply. I quite like the color, although I can't wait to spin some gradient or other multicolored yarns.
I'm planning on using this either on a cowl or a small shawl. I plan on spinning some more 2-ply yarn for a pair of colorwork mittens, but I also can't wait to try navajo plying in the near future.
