A Big Skein

I finished spinning and plying the 8 ounces of Romney/Coopworth roving!
 I wound all 339 turns of the skein winder to remove the yarn from the bobbin!
 It has a beautiful sheen for this fingering weight yarn!
 I almost got a perfectly balanced yarn-I'm calling it close enough!
 There were a few overspun portions but they will relax after a hot bath...don't we all?!
 Uh, huh;  I was right-the skein is now perfect for whatever 565 yard project I chose for it!
(the next step for this skein will be the dye pot, I am pretty sure!)

  1. That is a nice big yardage. You could make almost ANYTHING now.

    Can't wait to see what the dyepot brings.

  2. I've never spun romney or coopworth - it looks very soft and squishy! looking forward to see it dyed up - though the natural white is very lovely as well!
