Dragonfly Roving to Yarn

Remember this roving…

So 4 ounces has become approximately 550 yards of this lace weight yarn.

Handspun Dragonfly

Not exactly what I expected.  It’s more brown than I thought it would be, but still lovely.  I’m thinking the next 4 ounces should be socks – a nice 3-ply.  I don’t think I need anymore of this in lace weight.

  • I never know what to expect from this sort of roving which is one reason I always hesitate to buy. It’s turned out very pretty, wonder what it will look like knit? I think it would make great socks thought it will probably look different spun at fingering weight. Can’t wait to see how it changes!
