What was your inspiration?
A desire to spin lace weight. I don't knit with lace yarn so I've never bothered trying to spin it either. It took FOREVER. I don't know if I'll ever do it again! LOL. I guess I'll have at least one lace knit project! LOL
This was fractal spun. I split the wool in half and kept one side whole, I then split the other side into 5 more sections.
Lace weight/ 36-38 wpi
986 yds/ Fractal Spun/ 2 ply
