I plied up this yarn last night after work. We didn't get home until late*, so I was rushing against time to get it done by bed time. I hate to stop plying in the middle. It's kind of dangerous too, since the cat likes to eat inappropriate things.
I brought out the big plying head for my lendrum because I wanted this all in one nice fat skein. That meant treadling my butt off as fast as I could since the ratio is so low. By the time I was done I realized my left ankle was so sore I needed help to get down the stairs. Gordon was laughing so hard at my predicament that I thought he'd run back upstairs to plurk about it.
This yarn is a merino/alpaca blend, 100 grams, 2 ply and 334 yards. It's roughly a sport weight, but it varies a bit. I think it will be something lacey.
*I hiked all around downtown for a couple hours after work and then met Gordon for dinner
