This year I’ve chosen not to spin with a team, but to spin solo and with my own rules. If you’d like to know more ‘official’ information about the Tour, there’s some here.
More than halfway through my one-and-only braid now 😀
Merino goes very slowly. Bright side– these are the thinnest + most even singles I’ve ever done 😀
Annnnd the spinning ADHD begins. Started a Seacell study because the merino braid is boring me.
Went on a mini vacation, so the next four days of spinning were done away from home. Jeanette came, too, lol.
Finished and n-plied three ounces of the merino braid, and decided to combine the remaining ounce with my Seacell to create an art yarn. I’ve made the decision to let me ‘studies’ be more freeform (so boring otherwise!), hence the ‘combining fibers’ thing. Also started another study– suri alpaca in the raw (carded but raw -_-”) from a local farm 🙂
Spinning ADHD at full force now. Worked on the Suri and the Seacell/Merino, and started mohair lock singles for an art yarn.
Finished Suri singles and started n-plying. Continued mohair singles.
Not photographed, but I finished plying the Suri and the skein is hanging up to dry. I’ll have to wash it a second time, though… very dirty -_-
Mohair singles done. Also a picture of that first Merino skein now that it’s dry– it’s not as even as I thought, but it’s crazy-soft ❤
I met my goal of spinning every day for this week, so after the Tour is over I can buy myself a prize– a new spindle 😀
