Fiber Arts Friday: Tour de Fleece 2014, part 3

We're nearing the home stretch.  After this week is over, only a few more days of the Tour de Fleece.

Friday, July 18th

I decided I should finish out 3 ounces, which should be half of the never-ending green cotton from last week.  But there wasn't much time for spinning today.

Saturday, July 19th - Challenge Day

I spindled silk.... this was my first time with 100% silk.

Sunday, July 20th

Back to my wheel and a small amount of cotton.

Monday, July 21st - Rest Day

I didn't feel much like resting today, so I finished out what I thought was half of my never-ending cotton.

Turns out it's only 2 3/4 ounces.... I spun about 1/2 ounce during this Tour de Fleece.

It feels good to have this off of my wheel.  I will spin the remainder and then ply them together.  But I am going to take a break from this cotton for a little while.

I have 3 ounces to go.

Tuesday, July 22nd

I much prefer spinning on my wheel over my drop spindles, so I moved the silk to my wheel... it's going faster on the wheel, but the fiber is squeaky.

Wednesday, July 23rd

Thursday, July 24th

I'm about 1/3 finished with the silk single.  I plan to ply it when I'm finished.

I think it looks pretty in the sunlight.

Happy Spinning and Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

I'm writing this on the last day of TdF instead of spinning. I'm worn out. I bet the actual tour cyclists are too.
