Took Long Enough

From Wednesday to Sunday all I spun was 4 oz. Yep that's right. I forget how thin one can spin Shetland and this puppy only wanted to be spun thin and long draw. Now I can spin long draw fairly well, but this was a challenge. The fibers just wanted to separate and slide away from each other, therefore, I had to go slow. Worth it in the end. It's scrumptious! 2-ply light fingeringweight yarn. The colors are soft and subtle ranging from purples to a deep red over the dark brown natural color. Ah!!

That's gonna knit up pretty! Any ideas what you're going to make with it yet?
