So my second skein is done. Made from the Bluefaced Leicester roving.
My desire is to spin laceweight. I am not quite there yet. But after spinning, plying, washing, whacking, and hanging to dry with a weight on the bottom, I have what I am pretty sure could be called fingering weight. There are still some slubby parts, but not anything to be concerned about. I am very very proud of this one! Socks for Riley coming up!
Also, I wanted to mention that since I do not yet have a niddy noddy, Nicks swift came in so handy! When I finished spinning, I set the bobbin on the lazy kate, put it up on the table, threaded the yarn through the eyelet of the ball winder, and wound the whole thing on the swift. Worked fantastically!
Now I just have to figure out why my wheel is screaming at me.
Now for your fiber of the day. Today’s fiber comes from C*Eye*Ber Fiber. This one is also 50/50 Merino Tencel. It is shiny but not as shiny as the other. I just loved the silvery tones of this one.
