Thicker is better

If not better, certainly more satisfying when you get up from the spinning wheel at the end of an evening. I guess-timate that the Joseph's Coat took about 25 hours to spin, by contrast, I got nearly 200 yds of Corriedale spun and plied in an evening. This is only about 70 grams, so I have 130 grams left. Decisions, decisions - keep spinning this about worsted weight, or spin the rest of it laceweight for a matching hat/shawl set?

This yank has no idea how much 130g is, but I vote for worsted and then you can make a yummy WARM scarf out of it! Bea-u-tiful!

That's beautiful, Angela. I would ask if it's the Vegas Rainbow, but I can't detect the pink from here. What is this?

454g to a pound correct? I vote for worsted. If for no other reason, simply because I know that weight is not your norm and it would be a good challenge. 2nd - I agree with Jen. And Sam, too. It sure is beautiful. Nice job.

It's so pretty!! I vote for the laceweight. I just love when I get lots of yardage and can make something pretty out of so little fiber!
