It's been a busy old Tour for me this year. I managed to spin every day, except for the day we went to Bruges. I thought I might have a 'ta-dah!' moment and share my yarns with you.
Firstly, Picperfic's Fluff'n'Stuff Twinkle fibre, N-plyed. I ended up with 210 metres, so not enough for socks (for me at least!), but perhaps a hat?
Next, my British breeds spun up for my Sheep Heid hat. In total, I have around 400 metres of lovely, sheepy 2 ply yarn. This will be my first real colourwork project - it's something I've wanted to try for some time now.
My greatest spinning efforts probably went into the Sweet Georgia Panda fibre. It's a mix of merino, bamboo and nylon. I have around 560 metres of 2 ply laceweight yarn. It drapes beautifully and I think I am going to knit Wandering Thyme with it.
Lastly, a touch of luxury with Fluff'n'Stuff's Teddy - a mix of superfine merino, baby camel and mulberry silk. I spun it as a single and have about 450 metres of light fingering weight. I'm not quite sure what it's going to become yet!
So although I didn't manage to achieve all my goals (spinning enough yardage for socks and spinning silk fibre), I am pretty pleased with what I achieved, especially with a busy end of term going on too. Now it's back to the knitting!! I have a lot of new yarn to knit up! See you soon! xxx
