Squeeking in under the wire..

I spent a couple of hours on the 31st plying.. so we have an official finish of a full 4oz of fiber for the month of May!

I completed 500 yards of 2-ply yarn which measures out at a light fingering or heavy laceweight. The fiber content is alpaca/silk and it is gorgeous. I have to say I'm not really thrilled with spinning alpaca/silk. It's all slip and drape and it's danged gorgeous and will knit into something positively fabulous. But I really miss the sproing! of wool.

But my oldest bit of fiber-stash is now spun up! Huzzah!
