More fiber goodness

Long have I wanted to see a basket full of yarn that I have spun up myself, thanks to my new wheel I have achieved that goal

I struggled for so long with my old wheel, that I often had to walk away for days or even weeks. I’m proud of my little basket that is quickly filling up.

The latest addition to my basket is my 2019 Tour De Fleece project

Three bobbins, though there was some miscalculation on my part, it didn’t spin up exactly the same as my Take me to the sea color-way, however that turned out to be a good thing.

I am so very happy that I purchased this jumbo flyer, it was more than half full by the time I finished plying the three strands together.

The cake is 506 yards of polworth and silk, the hank of yarn on the right? Well I’m not sure, I was ready to go to bed but I do believe it is at least 200 yards. It was spun up as a two ply after I ran out of yarn on one of the three bobbins, believe it or not I still have one bobbin with yarn left on it.

I recently added to my fiber tool collection

Now I’ve debated on this many times, then I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase a hackle until after our trip when we knew what we were doing.

Well we don’t know and so instead of drooling over pictures and videos, I purchased this 12″ hackle and of course….went right to work using it

It was a bit of a learning process, still working on it actually, but this is 14 different shades of blue blended together

I still haven’t managed to get one continuous long strand, however I went from seven semi long strands of fiber, down to four and you know what?! I will take it!

Have a great weekend folks!
