Fresh of the bobbins and skeined …. two skeins of handspun, the first for the New Year. This wasn’t my best spinning but I am pleased with how it turned out and I have enough yardage for mitts, a hat or a cowl.
Yardage: 186 yards
Ply: Two plied using center ball pull
Fiber: Frabjous Fiber 100% Merino in the color Cactus
Yardage: 134 yards
Ply: Chain plied (Navajo Plied)
Fiber: Funky Carolina 100% BFL in the color Egg Hunt
I am now working on my beautiful fiber from my firiend Sherrill (a.k.a. the1764shepherdess ). This is a blend of Targhee, Bamboo and Silk. The colors in this braid reminds me of hot cocoa and chocolate truffles 😃
I decided to spilt this braid down the middle, 3 oz each. My plan is to spin up two bobbins and either chain ply or two ply. My hopes is enough yardage for a shaw.
