Okay, off the soapbox and on to the spinning. Oh the spinning we have have this year. I have a great fiber stash. My original intention was to spin for a sweater that I planned to knit during Ravellencis - another don't get me started topic. Well, I didn't get the fiber through the drumcarder in time. Frankly, I just couldn't make all that happen with moving just before the start of the tour. It's okay, I have plenty.
Anyhoo, I spun a total of 2 pounds 6 ounces with a whopping total of 3355 yards. The types range from 2-ply lace, second from the left, all the way to aran weight, first one on the left.
I am very proud of my spinning. The challenge was the camel silk blend. I did very well with that baby. I probably need to get another 2 ounces to spin for later because that stuff is like butter. I have 300 yards currently. Maybe there is a project out there for it. If you know of one share it!
Bye for now!
