Finally I have daylight and time to post a pic of my first finished yarn for TDF 2018. Heres Lucinda.. she measures 220.5meters, 12 to 13 wpi, weighs 90grams.
I 2plyed from 2 bobbins, one bobbin still has some single leftovers on it so I’ll add that in the next braid of this same fibre colourway that I spin, but I’m going to prep the next one different before spinning it.
finished my 3rd yarn today (the one in the middle) that I want to sell at the Beanie festival in July… I’m thinking of knitting a beanie now for the festival… I have more assorted fibres I can spin into yarn and I might knit a scrappy beanie made with them. 😉
this is 50/50 merino bamboo plyed with merino.. plying and soaking the 3rd and last skein tonight..then I’ll post pics of the 3 fibres used and all 3 yarns together..
slack me forgetting to update my little blog as usual.. but if you want to see my handspun yarns don’t forget to pop over to my Instagram page it’s spinning_scribbles on there too..👌😊
this is 70/30 merino silk blend with 50/50 merino bamboo
this one I’m plying up today is 70/30 merino silk with 100% merino..seeya soon!
I’m going to be plying these for the rest of the night..hoping to get two skeins worth from these bobbins 😊
