We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust. (Jalal ad-Din Rumi)

It took me almost 4 1/2 hours, but I finished plying the first of the corriedale Peacock yarn. It's a 2-ply plus metallic thread (so really, a three-ply) and it came out to be about 24 wpi. I still have to whack it (full it) and measure it out, but I think I have my first lace weight yarn!

I plan on this eventually becoming either Gwendolyn, Gail (Nightsongs), or I may even pay for a pattern and make it into Pretty as a Peacock Shawl.
