Two-ply laceweight, approximately 680 yards, spun from Chameleon Colorworks 50% merino/50% tencel, colorway Ophelia. It took a long time to spin and even longer to ply, but I'm thrilled with the results.
This is enough yarn to knit a decently sized shawl. It's a little uneven in spots, but I think the shine more than makes up for any inconsistencies or flaws in my spinning.
I did have some singles leftover on one bobbin, so I decided to go back to my old practice of Navajo plying for a mini-skein. The results looked pretty bad at first, but a wash and whack evened out the yarn beautifully -- and the resulting skein allowed me to play with my camera for some fancy-schmancy shots.
This shot was my favorite -- see the little fibers sticking out of the end? There's no way I could've gotten a shot like that with my old camera except by sheer luck.
I hope everyone had a good holiday week, and I'm excited to hear what exciting knitterly gifts you may have gotten!
