More Tour de Fleece this week...
Friday, July 6
I decided to go back to thick again. :-)
This is a Lincoln roving that came from the same farm as the Corriedale I spun last week.
My intent is to spin a similar weight yarn so that they can be used together in the same project.
I must say that this is a whole lot different than that amazing Grade 1 Alpaca also from last week. This is my first time spinning Lincoln, and I am liking it so far. :-)
Saturday, July 7
I had plenty of time to spin today, including a little time during the Tour de France coverage this morning. :-)
Sunday, July 8
A little more Tour de France coverage saw me finish the single.
Then I wound it into a cake
and plied into a 2-ply yarn.
This time I plied from the center and outside strand of the same cake. I had a few issues with tangles, but in the end I used all of the yarn in the final 2-ply.
I love the sheen in this yarn.
64 1/2 yards of Maplecroft Woolworks Lincoln - white
4 1/8 ounces
Again, pretty close to what I was going for. :-)
Monday, July 9
I had a hard time deciding what to spin next since I didn't really expect to complete this much already.
So when I don't know what to do, I usually spin alpaca thin for a big long-term project I have planned. But since I'm out of prepared alpaca, I thought this camel+merino would be nice. :-)
Which it is. :-)
I don't know where it's from other than I picked it up at the Estes Park Wool Market last month.
Tuesday, July 10 - Rest Day
Wednesday, July 11
It's a good thing that I have that 1/2 inch goal. I didn't think I would have any time today, but I found 10 minutes for spinning. :-)
Thursday, July 12
About a 1/2 hour before the day job started.
I sure like starting the day with a little spinning. :-)
Happy Spinning and Happy Fiber Arts Friday. Be sure to join in the fun over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.
