What a month it has been around here. I always think I will write a post and then it flies right out of my mind.
I was going to get you all caught up in one post but I might spread it out over a few posts.
I finished the yarn that I had started in the last post. It is from Woolgatherings it is the June Fiber Adventurer Club fiber in Merino. This is one of the most awesome yarns I have ever spun. I love the way it turned out.
I spun it as a two ply and I got around 442 yards. It is destined to be a TGV shawl I think.
I also spun up the Woolgathering June Playing Favorites Fiber
This is a two ply polwarth of about 328 yards. I really liked this one as well. It is very squooshy (that is a highly technical yarn term I have you know) and I am really looking forward to knitting with it.
This was the extent of my Tour de Fleece spinning. I would call this Tour an epic fail for me because I didn't get nearly as much spinning done as I was hoping. That is okay though because the Tour is just for fun, so I guess it wasn't a fail at all.
Hoping to get July off to a better start blogging than the last couple of months. I am participating in the Tour de Fleece again this year. We had a party last night at the LYS and had so much fun. I won some fiber and a gift certificate.
This is my first finished spin of the Tour. I am not happy with my yardage but sometimes that just happens. It is a Panda blend that was dyed by Wild Ivy. I only got 212 yards out of four ounces, it is somewhere between heavy fingering and sport.
This is what is going to be spun next on my wheel. This is the June Fiber Adventurer club colorway from Woolgatherings. It is a superfine merino and I just love these colors. I am thinking a two ply lace to fingering.
