Spin, Ply, Knit–Pretty pictures

Blame turtlegirl76 and knittingdiva. Turtlegirl76 talks spinning as much as knitting. Made me feel like I wanted to get out the wheel. Knittingdiva shows up several places showing off her first skein—a great thick and thin 2 ply. Wait! I own some of that same roving!

Gale’s Art — Merino Wool—Colorway Deep Blue Sea–a whole 4 oz.
Yes!

So I got it out and spun my usual DK weight 2 ply. It’s beautiful the way the colors interact. A single ply would have been Noro-ish (see bobbin). I managed 297 yards which will make—well, it will make something.

I think Knittingdiva’s was more wow, but I like the possibilities from mine better for me.

Enjoy the pics. What would you make with 297 yds?
