I got mostly a sport weight yarn for this skeins. The total weight is 113 grams but I haven’t drug out my yardage counter to run this through. It’s just pure exhaustion right now with work and I can’t be bothered.
But this skein isn’t getting immediately tucked in stash. I have the urge to make a musselburgh hat with it. Not sure if its enough, but I can always finish with another yarn and have that part be folded on the inside.
For now I’m headed out into the sunshine! Happy Friday!!
Started some new spinning this weekend. This is 4 ounces of 100% Rambouillet in the colors of my high school. My dad picked this out as part of my Christmas present and he happened to teach at that school for 40 years so I’m not surprised he gravitated to this color.
I split the braid in half and then striped each half into skinny sections. The first 2 ounces is already on the bobbin and I have the other 2 balled up. This is not spinning as thin as the Targhee did but that’s okay. I’m content to just go with the flow on this spin!
My dad surprised me this last week. He caught me after a weekend visit with a shipping bag. He admitted that some of my Christmas didn’t ship in time and it had arrived in February. He was a little embarrassed but I was excited!
This was 4 ounces of Rambouillet in the “Shiver” colorway and 4 ounces of a 70%/30% merino/nylon sock blend. The sock blend are little bits and bobs of mixed colors. I think I would break each nest into half or thirds and try to make matching singles.
I have a finished skein to show you tomorrow and now fiber already on the wheel that I will show next week. So for now, this fiber will need to wait its turn. But I am always happy for surprise fiber and adorable dads.
I have been spinning so much this summer that I am rapidly expanding my handspun stash while running out of fiber stash. So I fell down on the internet with my credit card and bought more fiber.
The top two are braids from 316 Dye Studio out of Wichita KS. I picked two braids of each color. The blue/grey on the left is Rambouillet and the blue/white on the right is Polwarth. I am hoping to that with 8 ounces I can end up with more than one skeins.
The bottom two 4 ounce packages from Three Waters Farm. The aqua on the right is a Targhee wool while the brown on the right is more Polwarth. This will most likely end up being smaller skeins for smaller projects.
I have sent all this wool to marinate and cool there heels in my spinning stash. Happy Spinning!!
