Spinning night

Tonight was a good night to spin some lovely Blue Faced Leisther fleece. This is called Emeral City by the friend who dyed it for me. I am planning on making a pull over sweater out of the yarn when it is completed. I purchased two pounds of the fiber and as of tonight I have spun 1/2 of it. Tomorrow I ply! I am making a three ply yarn, which is not quite worsted weight. I'll have to measure it up to get a real reading on the weight, but I'm getting great yardage out of it and it's soft and lovely when plied and set.
