It is now Day 8 of the Tour de Fleece and a lot of spinning has happened at Chez Sheepspace.
1015m of laceweight singles spun on my Louet Victoria on the smallest whorl (14:1, I believe), 111g.
155m of aran weight 3ply, spun on my Kromski Symphony at 10:1.
Enjoying my time with my Symphony, I started 200g of Sheltand in ‘Last of the Sunflowers’ (Wildcraft club fibre; Nov 2011).
This is destined for a handspun yoke cardi for my husband and he’s delighted it is in progress. I’m on the second bobbin of 3 now, and I’ll likely have it finished by the time he returns from Holland next week.
I also started the week off with a long-term WIP that I’m determined to finished during the Tour. My goal has been to spin a minimum of 15 minutes a day on the spindle, and most days it is closer to 30 minutes. Thankfully, my daughter is a slow eater and provides amble spindling opportunity. This, again, is 50/50 BFL/silk in ‘Autumn Leaves’ from Wildcraft:
I am a quarter of the way through the final spindle, and have 18g left to spin (each of those little bumps is 6g), which means if I continue spinning this daily it should be done and plied by the end of the Tour.
