Fiber Arts Friday: Tour de Fleece 2016, part 4

I spent a few days working on whichever ball was larger, then I decided to focus on the smaller one.  So both balls of Suri Pencil Roving are smaller than they were at the start of last week.

Starting with 1 3/8 ounces this week.

Friday, July 22nd

Saturday, July 23rd

Sunday, July 24th

I spun a lot more after my photo from yesterday and a little more this morning.

I have 7/8 oz to go. 


The Spin Your Stash team was a lot bigger than any I've been on in the past, so I found it difficult to keep up with who's who.  Not to mention a lot of them were spinning huge amounts of yarn.

I had to remind myself that I was using short staple yak and spinnging the Suri extremely fine, both of which go slower than some other fibers.

The nice part is that I ran into Fat Cat's Corner, who's spinning is looking wonderful... and who's blog needs some love.  ;-)

These are the fibers I was choosing from for this year's tour:

This is what I accomplished:

yak cloud - stashed October 2008
122 yards, single
1 1/8 ounces

Medium Brown Suri Roving - stashed March 2016
Started with 2 5/8 ounces
Ended with 7/8 oz to go
1 3/4 oz spun
Plan is to finish as a 2-ply yarn.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday

Love? My blog needs to be resurrected. Fine, FINE! I'll post something. Jeeze you are so pushy! LOL! I would trade the yardage I spun for the thinness you spun. And your ability to spin those short staples.
