I know it hasn’t been too long since I last posted about the Tour, but I’d initially planned to post on Saturdays anyway. In any event, the proximity just makes this post shorter.
What I’ve made since last time
Only one finished yarn since my last report, so I thought I’d give you a few photos of its progress:
This is my first true 3-ply yarn, as well as my first experience with Norwegian Long Wool. I’m hoping to make socks from this yarn.
I finished most of what I pulled out to spin during the Tour. I was being conservative intentionally, partly because I really had no idea how long it takes me to spin x amount of yarn, but also because I didn’t want to be disappointed in how much (little) I accomplished. As a result of this, though, I spent a bit of time this week adrift, not really knowing what to pick up next or how I wanted to spin this fiber or this other fiber.
- Norwegian Long Wool
- BFL (started before the Tour, but finished during)
- my own hand-dyed (ditto)
- 8 ounces of one colorway
- Fingering weight
- Lace or light fingering weight
Still aiming for:
A low-twist single (I plan to work on this on Thursday the 22nd, Challenge Day; I’ve had the Wensleydale — another new-to-me wool — set aside from the beginning.)
I started another (apparently, I didn’t weigh it yet) 8-ounce project yesterday. I split that into four strips, then split two of those in half again, and I pre-drafted them all yesterday. I got most of the way through the first 2-ounce section.
