Finally - I have spun enough yarn, and plied enough together, to try knitting something. Here's my sample, using "rabbit tracks" lace pattern. I've never done any lace knitting before so am very proud of myself for figuring out how to do this. I tried the bottom half of my sample with the recommended needle size - 5.5mm, and then went up to 7.5mm for the top half of the sample. I'm liking the openness of the top half, though I'm biased towards that because bigger needles mean it will knit up faster and I'll use up less wool!
I've already unravelled this sample and started knitting what will become a thermal singlet to wear under my clothes in winter. Wish me luck!
