handspun lace detail
Sakina Needles Dusty Cornflower roving, BFL, 4 oz.

About as close to a lace 2 ply as I've gotten. Still drying, so not sure what the wpi is. Gorgeous. The roving was all in shades of blue, mauve, cream and brown and the result spun/plied up into a yarn that will have long stripey stretches of heathered color. I am thinking that it will be good for a lacy scarf. Not quite sure how many yards I got, but at least 200. Yay!

Couldn't wait to get started on the Funky Carolina "unearthed" roving today, so that's going onto the bobbin in bits and spurts. Just about to start the decrease section on Clapotis, that too is coming on swimmingly. I think I'll get the Clap done in time to wear it during the cold bits of November and December. Or for what passes for "cold" here in LA, at least!
