I recently finished spinning up 100g of pretty blue/pink roving that I bought from my friend Lucy (Bearium on Ravelry). I was aiming for a DK weight and, after Navajo plying it and then winding it round my home-made niddy-noddy (I used plumbing waste pipe and t-connectors for it - less than a fiver at B&Q!) I've worked out that the 100g of roving has made approx 240 metres of yarn, which is more or less equal to the 2 x 50g balls of Sirdar Balmoral in the Wedgewood blue colour that I've got in my stash. So, I'm feeling rather pleased with myself and am planning on making another Baktus scarf, striping the two yarns
