The weather outside has been delightful. I’ve taken a few evenings this week to sit outside with my wheel. Of course, this will be made much easier once we have actual outdoor furniture rather than pulling out the Poang. However, I’ll take what I can get. :)
I’m about three-quarters of the way through spinning my second bobbin. The first was spun straight from the top, whilst I split this portion of the top in half along the length of the fibre.
It is spinning up beautifully and I am really enjoying it whenever I actually get a chance to sit down at the wheel. However, if I want to get this and the coordinating braid spun before the Tour de Fleece, I think I’ll have to get a move on.
Speaking of the Tour de Fleece, we are once again hosting a wildcard team over on the Wildcraft Woollies group on Raverly under the name Team Fibre Puffin (which is a long running joke within our group. You are more than welcome to join in, even if you don’t know what a fibre puffin is. No worries.)
I love the Tour de Fleece, and usually set a goal of spinning for a cardigan or jumper. I had thought that I’d be using some batts I carded up in September from the Wildcraft fibre club in the colourway Evergreens. Except that I just went to Flickr to grab a photo of the batts only to realise that I’d already spun them.
I’ll have to have a wander through the fibre stash and come up with another plan, because apparently I’ve lost some brains cells along the way… How do you forget spinning a cardigan’s worth of fibre?
