Sorbet

122 yards 50% Merino 50% Tencel 3 ply

12 WPI, worsted weight yarn

I spun this from 3 irish girls roving.  I was looking to work for a bit heavier weight yarn rather than the thin stuff I can’t help but create.  I managed, but it was a struggle!  I have to constantly watch myself when trying to create a thicker yarn, it makes for a rather tense spinning experience.

I’ve been working with fiber this weekend, but barely knitting.  There was just so much else to do.  Additionally, I vowed to read a book while J is overseas.  And, well, since I still haven’t read the last Harry Potter, I borrowed it from Sarah and plowed through half of it this weekend.  Yes, when I read, I read just like I knit.

And finally, if you remember last month I received the most beautiful fiber from my swap partner.  I’ve begun to spin it, and it is spinning like a dream.  I have decided that I just love batts!  I will spin the wool and ply it with the silk.  And then I have plans for it!  No…you can’t have it!  LOL
