So, last Sunday I left off with an update about the Ravelry "Tour De Fleece". I have been spinning everyday this week- mostly on my Ashford Joy but also with my new drop spindle! I have never really spun with a drop spindle before, but it is really enjoyable, quick and best of all- it is totally portable! I even spun in the car on the way to a comedy show- rest assured it wasn't me in the drivers seat!
Next on the wheel was a drum carded batt blended with Hebridean, bamboo and sparkle, spun in a mid weight thick n' thin for me to play with. I spun about 110g and 159 meters. It's now wound it into a very stylish ball which I am knitting from periodically, i'll take a few more snaps when it develops more.
