That’s half of my fiber on that bobbin, a whopping 2 ounces of singles – it doesn’t fill the bobbin much, but I have a pretty good twist going on it which should relax out nicely into a bouncy 2-ply (based on my highly accurate scientific testing method of fold-a-bit-in-half-and-see-what-it-looks-like).

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
