Book Review: Rustic Modern Knits by Yumiko Alexander (24.99)
Question: From AMKnits14, “Hi Leslie and Laura! I’m fairly new to spinning and currently spinning on a drop spindle. I just finished my second 4oz of fiber. My first one was approx 75 yards (2 ply) and this one is approx 50 yards (Navajo ply). Is this typical yardage for 4oz? I Feel like I’m getting much better with practice but I just want to make sure I’m doing something “right.”
