TdF, more new yarn

IMG_3155

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.
