Three Ply Merino Lace Weight

I dont know how other people do it, but this is my method. My kate is not tensioned, but it works for me.I have heard others talk about having the kate behind them, but I think that would really bug me; for one thing I wouldn't be able to see what was going on. With it in front of me, I can keep the tension right and know if I am going to fast and making the bobbins spin.
These are the first two skeins, sorry, this merino is very bright white, as you all saw in the last post, but I couldn't get a 'white' picture today, probably the time of day. The WPI on this is 30-32.
This is the scarf in Interweave Crochet that I would like to make out of it.

Oh what a beautiful scarf pattern. You are inspiring me to spin up some of my merino fleeces.......your skeins are lovely!

dessessLovely is the word! I don't even spin merino because I don't like the way it turns out. Maybe next time I see you I can get a few lessons.

What a beautiful job, love the pattern too. I can't crochet to save my life! Can't wait to see it finished you always do such nice work.
I like the way you ply, I usually have mine next to me and I keep having to look around. I'm going to give your way a try, Thanks!!

Hi Becky,
Beautiful, just beautiful.

I saw your message on my blog about wanting alpaca fleece. I would be interested in trading some for wool. That way we could be sure of the quality (I have had some not so nice experiences in purchasing fleeces). Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss it further.. My email is cinnabar_38@yahoo.com
