All the carded batts are spun, I now have to card more. There is plenty of washed fleece left in my stash!

Was looking at patterns (starting with my library) and found these two patterns that I think I’ll try to make with this yarn:
Grandpa Cardigan by Joji Locateli
Que Sera by Kristin Kapur.

I’ll need between 1250 and 1500 yards depending on what size I make and if I am adding any length.

Oops! All the numbers are before washing the skeins. I am going to have to recalculate since there was some shrinking up of the skeins after washing.

It looks like I’ve lost about 150 yards overall. Not too bad. I should still have enough for the small.
