Tour de Fleece is over. My goal was to spin at least 15 minutes a day; most days, I did more than that. I finished spinning up the “Neverland” merino I was working on, and it’s beautiful (if I say so myself!) I also spun over 2 oz. of Black Welsh Mountain wool, as part of my project to try different breeds’ wool. And I washed some of the lamb fleece I was given, and have carded a little bit of it–enough to think that at least some of it is spinnable.
I’ve been working on this “Tilly’s Blanket” for our great-niece, but since she decided to put in an early appearance, it obviously wasn’t ready for her. So I’m going to whip up a quick hat in a preemie size to send now, and I’ll send the blanket whenever I finish it. My sock project hasn’t gotten much attention, but I’ll get back to the socks when I get these other projects done! I also have a secret project that’s basically finished, but needs the ends woven in before I can give it to the recipient. (A lot of ends. Because stripes. Sigh.)
Are you making anything right now? Please tell me about it!
