I wanted to make a pair of mitts out of some pretty handspun I had finished during this year's TdF so I wound it up and stuck it into my yarn bowl and......uh, oh. It didn't fit. I use this bowl all the time for balls of yarn so I had to investigate.
Yup. It was big. Bigger than expected.
I had bought 4 ounces of this lovely Polwarth from a vendor on Etsy and I guess she threw in some extra for the ride.
I went back and looked at my posts from when I was spinning it but I didn't seem to have a problem getting it all on the Ladybug bobbin. It was chain plied.
Now it's becoming a pair of mitts and I suppose something else. There is going to be a heck of a lot left over.
