So...here's my daily progress so far:
|Stage 1 - 4 oz. Dragonfly Fibers SW Merino Silk in the Zombie Apocalypse colourway|
Second bobbin for a 2 ply, attempting to spin as finely as possible
|Stage 2 - Waterloo Wools BFL in Waterlilies colourway|
Attempting to spin thicker for a worsted weight
|Stage 3 - More Waterloo Wools Waterlilies. Finished second bobbin of singles|
|Stage 4 - Plied Dragonfly Fibers Zombie Apocalypse|
|Stage 5 - Plied Waterloo Wools Waterlilies|
|Stage 5 - Started another 4 oz braid of Waterloo Wools BFL|
Turkish Delight colourway, spun 3 oz of singles
I started off the morning by winding off the plied yarn to the niddy noddy which winds it into skeins so I could soak and thwack it (so much Fun!!). The yarn is now drying and looks better than I could have hoped. Finished photos to follow.
I'm out for a bit tonight with friends, but I'm hoping I'll have time to ply the Turkish Delight when I get home. I also have to choose the next braid/bump/cloud/batt to spin!! That's often tougher for me than the actual spinning part!
