The Spinning Wheel  - 
 
Just took this 2 ply off the bobbin. Looks to be about 170 yds. I'd like to get a simple triangular shawl done for Springs Folk Festival in October.

Squee! I finished it! I love it! Still not sure about blocking. I'll leave it as it is for now.
Pattern: Andrea Poncho
Yarn: Terra Cotta from Shelridge Farm (I've lost the wrap)
Needle: size 8 circ 24"

Very nice. As of blocking: just give it a soak and let it dry. It will lay flatter.

Need some help, here!  - 
 
I am about to finish up my Andrea Poncho & need some information on blocking. I would love some ideas. I'll be looking online, but I'm not always successful at finding the best information. Would love to hear your thoughts.

It's a slightly lacy pattern, right? That will definitely improve with blocking.

Soak it in warm water as per ballband allowed, add a tiny bit of detergent, rinse and either spin it in the spin cycle of the washing machine or - of you don't want to do that - lay it out on a thick towel, roll that up and press out as much water as possible.

Than spread it out on a clean, flat surface, pull it in shape and let it dry.

I know it's been a while, but I'm still hanging around. I haven't been doing a lot of spinning but I just finished this 2ply this morning. It was an undocumented fiber gift so I don't know what it is. It's not extremely soft, but it will make a great hunting toboggan for the Mr.

I got about 170 yards on this one. Another 2 bobbins waiting to be plied & enough fiber for at least 1 more bobbin. I might just wait & do a 3ply next.

Knitting at the Lake today. It was really cold, but extremely beautiful. I'm left with about 20 rounds to complete
