The Two Year Yarn

For me two years is not a long time to leave projects languishing.  I left a cardigan for about seven years before it saw the finish line (and then I didn’t like it and gave it away!)

I started blending and spinning this in August 2011 and it took the Tour de Fleece to finish the spinning.  Last week, spurred on by the need for a lace bobbin, I finally managed to get it plied.

It’s turned into a soft and glossy 3-ply yarn with just a hint of sparkle (there is a small bit of Angelina carded in).  I don’t currently have plans for it, though a shawl is a likely destination.
