One Cop Skein

That first cop off the spindle made a much larger skein than I expected......49.5 metres of 3 ply (Navajo plyed) worsted weight in a lovely soft variety of pinks/blues/purples.

I've got a good start on the hat for the contest. With that first cop's worth I got the entire crown and a few rows down the sides of a crocheted hat completed. Spindling up the next cop tonight.

It's really pretty. I'm almost getting to the point that I'm going to have to try it myself, as I watch the results of so many other people.

I don't really know all that much about spinning but your yarn looks beautiful!

By the way - I was checking out your archives and your idea for the directional branching out is genius! i will definitely be using that next time I knit that pattern!
