I finished the singles and the plying of this:

Dscn5232

This is the merino-mohair I bought from Spirit-Trail at Maryland, three ounces of (what I think was) brown merino striped with red and yellow mohair, which spun up to about 290 yds of dk-ish yarn.  I had an interesting time with the differences in staple length, but I really like the way it came out.  It’s more woolen and less worsted than a lot of what I spin, which I think will be good for its intended purpose (wristwarmers for my mom, for her next birthday), and I’m really proud of the fact that it’s almost perfectly balanced–the pre-twist-set skein had a smidgen less than a quarter turn.
