My (semi) private goal for the longest time has been to spin a 3 ply fingering weight yarn. Why? Because I’m competitive, but also because I tend to knit mostly with a fingering weight yarn. 🙂
This weekend, I finally met my goal! I started with 4oz of Magic Stix yarn (no longer in business) in three shades of purple:
I spun each purple shade on it’s own bobbin, and although I had some inconsistencies, I did end up with a 3 ply fingering weight yarn! It’s 260 yards, which is less than I wanted but still pretty dang good for a first 3 ply out of 4 oz. Have a gander:
I’m pretty stoked and if it was enough yardage I would totally be winding it to knit right now!!!
