What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself time to learn the technique. Park and drop helped me do the entire batt. I haven't gotten the hang of the long draft method - with the dropping of the spindle - even after eight hours of spinning.

I really adore these colours! What are you planning to make with these beauties?

I've been working on a tunisian crochet garment which really highlights the yarn. I've used the one I made along with commercial yarns and a gift hand spun to create a large rectangle which I am transforming into a vest. I've uploaded some of the photos although I won't finish it until mid-November.
