Here is the yarn that I've spun... The 3 that are together are what I spun and plied on my wheel. The other 2 are what I spun on my drop spindle. The small one is VERY over spun, it was my first one. The other one is a single and I don't think I'm going to ply it... have not really decided yet.

For the coopeworth , I was thinking a hot pad. Not sure what pattern to use. Maybe just knit a rectangle and felt it. Would it be wrong to felt my first handspun? I'd like to make something I'm going to use.

For the single alpaca, I'm thinking either a neck warmer or scarf. I need to estimate how much yarn I have (I forgot to count it when I had it on my niddy noddy) andthat will help me decide.

I might dye the coopworth... but the alpaca is staying the way it is.

Thank you all!

If it's in a hank form right off the kniddyknoddy you can still guesstimate the yardage. Just count how many strands there are in the loop and multiply that by the circumference of the kniddyknoddy divide that by 36 and ya gots yer yardage.

I forgot to do that... I need to untwist it from the hank and count it... I just forgot and it's so much easier when you have it on the niddy noddy, at least it is for me...
