Spinning a Gift
For a while I've been thinking that I should spin some wool for a neighbour who is a keen knitter and crocheter. I always have more ideas and intentions than time or energy to carry them out, but I began this task on my to-do list yesterday.
I think 400g should be enough to be useful. I weighed out 100g of wool top on my kitchen scale and then measured out three more strips the same length. 100g of wool pretty well fills one bobbin, so that will be two batches of two bobbins spun and then plyed together. At my present rate of progress, that'll take me four days.
