Spinning Week Round Up!

I have been so motivated to spin and have managed to finish up two more bobbins, both have been chained plied and the yardage just about what I was aiming for.
July 5th I started spinning my NBK Superwash BFL and finished it up yesterday.  This morning I was able to chain ply it  and ended up with 100 yards of worsted weight yarn.  I absolutely love how it turned out! It’s super soft and I think my finished skein will be perfect for mitts.

Friday I started spinning the Schacht 50th Anniversary Color Barry’s Jubilee hand dyed by Sweet Georgia.  This braid was a 85% Polworth 15% Tussah Silk blend that I found slightly challenging to spin, which I think as the silk.  I ended up with 60 yards of light bulky weight chain plied yarn with a lovely marled look.
So over all this week I have spun 243 yards of handspun 😀
Until next time, be creative!
