Finished Targhee

My Aqua Targhee 2-ply is DONE and absolutely gorgeous!

I ended up with 114 gram skein that resulted in most 12-13 wraps per inch. So this is most definitely a sport weight yarn. I didn’t get an exact yardage as my counter had trouble latching on to this yarn. But I am going to guess around 185-200 yards?

This skein is going to join my Sweet Mulch Polworth skein as a retirement gift for my crafty coworker. I just need to find the perfect card to go with!

Happy Spinning!!

Fire And Targhee

My primary focus this past weekend was the Targhee spinning project. I am SOO close to finishing the singles on this one. The weather has turned back cold for this week so it’s back to fire spinning.

Only one more ounce and I can tee up for plying! My mojo has been ALL spinning lately and I’m not going to complain as its turning out some beautiful handspun. I should really start knitting with some of it, lol!

Happy Spinning!!

Starting Targhee

We are getting peaks of warmer days here in Kansas. It was about 60 degrees so the whole family got outside to play. The kids played soccer and I peddled on some new Targhee Singles.

This fiber is a gorgeous aqua colorway. The targhee is not as soft as the polworth I just finished. Again I’m going with my default spin of short forward draw and two plies.

With some concerted effort on drafting, I am achieving some very thin singles. This could end up being a lighter weight yarn. Which is very exciting to see I am going more control of my technique.

Happy Spinning!!
