oh, I also went ahead and halved the roving lengthwise again and it is a lot easier. It was just too hard to make such a fat column pull thinly. I had already halved it once so I am using a quarter of the width and it is making about a worsted weight (I'm new to knitting so that may not be entirely accurate). It was an 8 oz bag, not 6 BTW.
