The Tour de Fleece is over for another year and although I did manage to spin almost every day (I think I missed one day), I didn’t make my goal. I was really hoping to have all my sweater yarn finished by Saturday but I still have about two more bobbins worth of fiber left to spin (and I’ve already spun almost a full bobbin more than what’s in the picture). I don’t really care that I didn’t finish, I got some nice yarn before I started the sweater yarn and I’m happy with the spinning I did.
Here’s what I have, the bottom row is all sweater yarn, the wool/angora/cashmere blend that I also washed and carded. The top row, from left to right, is: a skein of three ply sport or light worsted weight superwash. A skein of nice shiny bamboo. Two skeins of two ply worsted Rambouillet/Llama, a 50/50 blend. The last little skein is some hackle waste that I found in a box, it’s got some wool, superwash wool, llama, alpaca, mohair, nylon, soy silk, and some iridescent shiny stuff that I carded together and spun very into a loose thick and thin, around worsted weight.
This week I plan on finishing up my singles and I have a back log of finished projects that I haven’t even blogged about. Cold Mountain is done but needs blocked. I knit a hat. I still haven’t photographed my woven bag. I’ve knit almost an entire blanket that I haven’t even mentioned. I will write more about this stuff this week. Now I’m off to knit on that blanket.
