....and patience. This year's Tour has been one frustration after another and I'm over it. Why I can't seem to carve out a few hours in my morning to sit and spin is beyond me but I can't so I am calling this year's Tour officially over for me-at least the spinning part. This is the two and a half week total for the spindles. It's about half of what I did last year and I know this because I still have last year's singles on the toilet paper tubes to prove it.
The BFL I dyed yielded these two lopsided bobbins. I spliced them together and evened them out and made a 2 ply.
It's the one on the top obviously. I really like it. I'm not sure it is neck worthy yet but it will have to become something. The bottom one is the California Red I washed, carded and spun. I made one skein last year from it and this one is much, much better. When I have enough of it spun it will become socks. It's scratchy.
I still have what's left on these two bobbins and a bag of fiber I can card for next year.
Last but not least is the Polwarth I started last week. I've still got a lot left to spin but I am going back to only working on it at night when everything is calm and no one needs me to do anything for them.
