It is now day 3 of Tour de Fleece, and I have failed to post any pictures at all! My progress thus far has been to finish up a skein of jacobs fleece roving. It is undyed and absolutely rich and gorgeous. It still has some lanolin in it, but I’ve never minded a more raw feel to my wool. This is a 2 ply which is rustic, somewhat thick and thin, and very earthy. 90 yards of worsted to bulky weight yarn.
As I was pulling this off the wheel, Bug decided that this reminded her of JJ’s sweaters. I thought that was an interesting observation. Unfortunately, she decided I should be knitting him a sweater out of it, though there is just not enough. After trying to understand how much yarn it takes to knit a sweater, she decided a hat would be better. I don’t know if she will get her wish or not, but it really is some lovely wool!
As for progress pictures, I’ve been working on some falkland roving which I am considering plying with some silk. What do you think? I am not sure that the pinks really do go well enough together to try it, but I am not thrilled to pieces over either roving so I’d be willing to give it a try.
And on that note, I really should do some dishes and make some dinner. I really cannot spin all day can I?
