Hanspun Mill Ends

-Spun from more of those mill ends I keep talking about. The color is a mix of blue and purple.
-260yds
-Approximately 2ply sportweight (though I was trying for worsted).
-I think there's about 4oz of yarn here, but I don't have a scale yet so I can't be sure.

This was a really fun spin. It goes fast when you're spinning a thicker yarn! Still a little underspun though.
I'm excited to find a project for this one.

Here are a several ideas for a sport weight...
I just used a filter on my favorites from Ravelry for Sort weight yarn.
