Here is the skein I created from Raveler Jessiebird's lovely handpainted skein. She calls her indir dyeing business A Piece of Vermont. I LOVED! spinning this. This two ply is 234 yards for a 4.15 ounce skein, and 13 WPI. Plus it is luxuriously soft being superfine merino.

I'm making progress on the Tour de Fleece and today I managed to spin up the Wildberry Moon BFL/tussah braid in the Seeds of Change colorway. I look forward to getting it plied tomorrow! that's four ounces down, for a total of 8 ounces of spinning. Will my two pound Tour de Fleece goal be easy peasy?
