Not much to show for 3 days of Lace Class. The fat skein was the last thing we did, after 2 1/2 days of tiny. Margaret said make it as fat as you can. Mine was by far the fattest, 3 ply aran. She picked it out as her favorite skein of the class! She said it was very difficult to make merino do that.
All our fiber was unwashed (not dirty) fleece from New Zealand. 3 Different grades of Merino. We washed it by locks, fluffed and spun.
