Wow over a month since my last post, shame on me!!! But I have been very busy this past month. I finished my Bristow sweater, done in my wildberry hand spun. Sorry no pics, have to get someone to take some, maybe tomorrow. And lots of spinning!!! I am doing the tour de fleece on Team Suck Less on Ravelry. Yesterday Lisa, aka TsockTsarina, and I spun our mile. At least I think mine is a mile, if not exactly the extremely close to it!! We spun for almost 9 hours, with breaks but still that's alot of spinning. But it was beautiful out and all in all an very nice day. The buddy system really is great, we kept each other going and entertained. That was when Luke, her cocker spaniel, wasn't entertaining us!! What a wonderful dog!! He is really a sweetie and very well behaved I might add. In fact here he is.... He was guarding the door way to the sun room so no one could get to Lisa and I. Namely my hubby, he was making sure no one disturbed us!!
He was so good all day, just watching us spin, must have been very boring for him. And here is my spinning for the day. Its a wool silk blend and it is about 44 wpi, that is the thinnest I have ever spun.
Over all I am quite happy with it. The colors are just like a peacocks tail feathers. I have a pound of this stuff soooo, I will be spinning for a while!! That is all for now, back to spinning. Oh and this is what I did for the beginning of the TDF
That is a mohair blend, not sure of the yardage or the wpi but that is 4 ply baby!!! Oh yes I am sucking less at spinning!!
