Mostly just the ramblings of a stay at home mom who loves to knit, spin, quilt, scrapbook and generally do all things crafty.

Well, here it is the finished 'spun gold' The ounce of locks yielded about 52 yards of worsted weight gold yarn. I am pretty happy with it even though it got less gold like and more '70's shag carpet' as I spun it. It's still all sparkly and that just tickles me to no ends.
I also finished plying my lacewieght and after a reality check with the spinning I realized I was still underplying (a chronic problem for me) and started being more patient with it and in the end I got the results I was hoping for. I am really looking forward to knitting with this yarn, I am thinking I will make something out of Nancy Bush's 'Knitted Lace of Estonia.'
