I started spinning it soon after I got back home and after a few months, I had it finished. I decided to 3-ply it to try to make the fabric look tweedy, and also because it was spinning fairly thin. When I finished, I was delighted with the yarn. The judges at the Evergreen State Fair were, too, as I received an award for Class Runner Up for one of the skeins.
The problem was that I only got about 750 yards and didn't think that was enough for a sizeable sweater. I contacted the Taylors and asked if they had more fiber and, of course, they didn't. I searched around for sweaters that used a minimal quantity of yarn, and settled on the Summer Open Cardigan from Knitting Pure & Simple. It's a short raglan style with elbow length sleeves. I thought it would give me flexibility to end whenever I got short of yarn, so I began. I knit it pretty much as written, except I put in some waist shaping. I knit until it was about hip length and then started both sleeves. I had a couple of minor setbacks on the sleeves; they were getting too tight and one ball of yarn had a lot more green in it, so they were a little mis-matched. I ripped back a ways, took out some of the sleeve decreases, and started alternating balls of yarn. The yarn is fairly thick and warm and I thought short sleeves might not be a good idea, so I just kept knitting and managed to get full length sleeves done. I actually had quite a sizeable ball of yarn left; I must have used less than 700 yards for the sweater, so success! It took a couple of days to dry after I washed it - we're having record rain even for Seattle - but it fits and is super cozy and warm.
A happy ending to a very satifying project!
