I went and visited my friend Kathy at her art studio yesterday. I’ve been so busy and so has she so we haven’t seen each other in a few months so we had plenty of gossip to share! 😉…
So while I was there I managed to get most of the rolags from my last post spun and I added some assorted blue finnx fleece to the bobbin as well. I’m going to ply it with some other fibres that I’m spinning tonight.
I spun and plyed this yarn yesterday..it’s gold orange/red and brown dyed finnxcorriedale/romney fleece.. I’m pretty happy with how squishy it is.. It’s 185grams, 123 meters 7wpi so it’s chunky.
….This yarn is actually day 9.. it’s another braid of Polwarth/Pearl 75/25..spun on two bobbins and then plyed…
It’s 10/11 wpi and 163 meters, 95grams.
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.
