Got to toot my own horn a bit

I just measured the Shetland yarn I spun on my Ashford Student drop spindle the other day. It's 60 wraps-per-inch! ::squee!:: In 2-ply, that's 30 wpi... well into the fine lace weight range. I am so proud of myself! ::jumps for joy:: ... Now, if only I could figure out how to do that on my wheel...

To comment on the Shetland fiber... I think it's easier to spin than Merino... That was unexpected, since it seems like so many people sing the praises of Merino.
