web spinning

To start my next project, grandma's shawl, first I had to ball the yarn. 2200 meters of it. That's like, over a mile of yarn I wound BY HAND. Yes, I'm insane. It took over 2 and a half hours. My arm was SO sore the next day. I totally need a ball winder.

I've started knitting this Cobweb shawl and so far I'm enjoying it. The yarn is a very very fine boucle type mohair/wool/nylon blend. I'm using my Denise Interchangable Needles, which work well because the tips are really pointy.

Oh I like the denise needles and I love the shawl so far. Where did you get all of the yarn in one length?

Thanks! The yarn is another Fleece Artist special purchase through the yarn co-op. It's called Angel Curls, color Aqua, and it came in a 250 g hank = 2200 meters.
