As some of you may already know, I began spinning in early November last year. The 11th to be exact, so I will be celebrating my one year anniversary as a spinner in five short days.
What most of you DONT know however, is that I originally learned to spin so I could spin my own lace weight yarn...you know, to furnish my then new addiction: knitted lace.
It has since been my goal to spin 1000m of yarn from 100g of fibre. Today I finished skeining my first genuine attempt at achieving my goal and guess what? Here she is; 1060.5m of 2ply lace weight (merino/tussah) yarn weighing 105g.
|Merino/Tussah Silk (80/20 blend) from EGMTK (Blue Haze)|
|Shiny! Smooshy! So much yarn...YAY!|
|An Aussie 5c coin for perspective (around the same size as a US penny)|
What an AWESOME way to celebrate one year of spinning!
