What materials did you use? "Midnight" colorway merino wool from Smoky Mountain Spinnery, Gatlinburg TN.

What are you most proud of? Much finer singles and better consistency than my first attempt. 8 oz = 220 yards. Not quite the worsted I'd kind of hoped for, but a nice squooshy bulky-but-not-too-bulky! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely refer back to the videos! I came back to Craftsy several times and made good use of the video options to re-watch specific segments.

This is beautiful! You did such a great job. I will have to go by that yarn store. I do not get to Gatlinburg often, but I may have to plan a little trip. . .Thank you for sharing.

It's a neat store... a fair yarn selection but LOTS of fiber! :) Definitely a spinning focus!
