Here are the stats for Dried Flowers:
Material: 100% superfine merino
WPI: 16 stitches (fingering weight)
I was so close! All that work and it's not lace weight. If it had been, I'd have more than enough yarn. But it's not. Still, I've never gotten 300 yards of yarn out of any fiber I've ever spun, and fingering weight is closer to lace than DK weight, so I'm pretty proud of myself.
Still, it's prettier now that it's dry. Looks a lot less like liver color than I originally thought. But it is fingering weight. And the yardage is enough to make a pair of socks - almost. Maybe really short socks.
My choices boil down to: a short shawl, a short pair of socks, or I can use this:
It just so happens to be the only other lace weight yarn I have in my stash. Knit Picks merino wool, 440 yards and I have two skeins (in case I make a mistake) more than enough to make the shawl - even if it is darker than I planned (like night and day).
Still, it is pretty. And already spun.
Can you feel my pain?
