TdF, more new yarn


TdF has been so so good to me already this year! It took me from not touching my wheel at all to actively sitting down at it every chance I get. While the chances are fewer than they have been in the past, I am still getting quite a bit done.

This skein is 270 yards of 3 ply fingering weight yarn. The fiber was Malabrigo Nube, colorway Arco Iris. I pulled thin strips off the bump and spun them without paying any attention to what the colors would do, which scattered them quite nicely. It left me with a skein that is overall green, but with lots of wonderful depth.

I immediately thought about putting a new project on my wheel, but then realized I’d actually rather keep working on what I’ve already started. So, I had brought my work project home for the weekend, and I began to put some of that on the wheel as well as the spindles.


This is camel/merino/silk and I was having a terrible time spinning it on my spindles. But it spins like a dream on the wheel. I am afraid my TdF will be a little boring now, as I’ve 6 oz. of the stuff and it’s all basically going to look just like this for awhile.

I am not taking a rest day today, I am saving my rest day for this weekend when we have Mr. Ink’s sister in law in town to help with the old house clean out. We got quite a bit done over there yesterday, but the deadline looms as does the work.
