Mmm, handspun goodness!
I’m really not sure why I don’t spin singles for laceweight more often—I like the look, I hate having to ply, and I have a bunch of small bumps of fiber that do well when spun like this. I think maybe a part of me is always worried about the strength of my singles, nevermind that a well spun and well finished single will probably hold up just fine in handknitting. I hope.
Fiber is 1.5oz of 70/15/15 merino/cashmere/silk from Redstone Yarns, spun on a 1oz spindle. 720 yards.
It is becoming clear that I’ll need to step up my game to compete with Team Suck Less, though, since it took me most of the week to finish this. Fortunately we have new kittens who have offered to, um, “help.” We’ll see how that goes.
