First Handspun Lace Weight

My yarn a day challenge for the weekend was lace weight singles. I had no intention of spinning lace just yet but when I started spinning this lovely sliver it spun up as frog hair to quote the wonderful geekkitty. I just need to ply it to make it a two ply just in case there are any thin spots. Better safe than sorry. I am hoping for at least 350 yards when I am done. I want to knit up the new pattern from Felicia Lo aka Sweet Georgia in the new lace weight.

The photo here was taken when I still had about an ounce to spin. It is done and resting. If the sun ever bothers to come out again, I promise a better photo. I couldn’t even get a decent shot of the new yarn in progress.
