Maybe one of these days I'll stop looking at my hand-spun as a finished object and recognize the fact that one can actually take it a step further and knit with it (imagine!). But for now, it's another FO.

I think this is the finest and most consistently spun yarn I've made so far. I spun a touch over 4 ounces and came out with about 540 yards of 3-ply (470 regular ply and the remainder is the Navajo). With my lack of height, heck I could make a pair of thigh-highs with all of that yardage. Hmm...wool thigh-highs. Yeah, that's HOTT...
