What are you most proud of? I love the way the colors look together when they are spun.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used 2 drop spindles for each section of the 2 ply. I divided the fiber in half length wise and separated the first half into 5 sections and spun them in succession. The other half, i divided into 2 (one really large piece and one section that was about 1/4. I spun all of each color in succession and ended with the final 1/4th. I ended up with 117 yards from 1 oz. I haven't washed and thwacked it yet, but it appears to be a light-mid fingering weight yarn. Final result was 454 yards :-) and it is absolutely beautiful! I decided to knit this into the Rustic Autumn shawl and really liked how it turned out.
