Tour de Fleece :: Days 1+2, originally uploaded by earthchick.
So it has begun!
I had limited time with the wheel on TdF Day 1, due to travels. I spent some time before hitting the road doing some plying. I hate showing yarn that hasn’t yet been washed, but here ’tis.
This is 176 yards chain-plied heavy worsted Pigeonroof Fiber Studios Superwash Merino, “Calico.” I had intended it to be much thinner than heavy worsted, but I’m still getting used to spinning in double drive.
My sweet Cherry Matchless was a quiet and happy traveling partner yesterday and today. Nestled in the back with my Detroit Tigers pillow pet, she smiled at me occasionally when I glanced back in my rearview. 820 miles later, she was happy to get out of the car and get to work.
I started tonight with Spunky Eclectic Mixed BFL in “Forest.” I only get maybe half an ounce spun, but it was a delicious spin and I’m looking forward to more!
Matchless remains on my List of Things I want by the time I am 40!
Love the colorway on Pigeonroof.
i spun on my instructor’s cherry Matchless (same edition, i believe) in my first lesson. drooooolll….
can’t wait to see what else you spin up. 🙂
