Two Things

I could not finish the knitting project with the Jacob Fleece yarn I plied earlier this week, so I was forced to spin some more. I totally forgot what a pain this particular fleece is to spin, and how it is quite dirty (my fault for giving up on a fleece that was less than amazing) and how it makes my entire house dirty when I spin it. I forgot how I only spin this in the warm months, out on the porch, to save myself from that. It took two days, but I do have another skein of light gray yarn. This time I have 108 yards.



I also decided to work on a new spinning project. I’ve had this superwash merino from Enchanted Knoll Farms in my stash for years. I think I purchased it online, and when I got it, because all that was showing were the more muted colors, I put it away. Well, once I opened it up, I realized why I purchased it in the first place. I love the blue and green against the brown, and I wouldn’t really call it all that muted at all.



Now with two spinning projects on the spindles, I should have plenty to keep me occupied when I am absolutely sick of Christmas gift knitting.
