This is my first time trying to spin a yarn to match what is recommended in the pattern. The pattern is the Madli Shawl from Interweave Summer 2004. The yarn is a 2-plyed lace weight - 1000m/200g. I worked it out that 10g of fibre, spun and plyed, should be 50m of yarn. The swatch was right on gauge, after blocking.
Now, the challenge will be to spin enough yarn to knit the shawl. Bobbin Two is filling up nicely. Once this one is full, I'll start plying.
