I’ve been meaning to start spinning again for weeks now but finally got going last weekend. I finished up this first 2 oz batch (I have 8 oz total of this roving) at Knitting Group last Wednesday: The fiber is 50/50 wool/mohair (50/50) roving in colorway “blueberry,” purchased from Persimmon Tree Farm (Glen Rock, PA) at MDSW’09. I’m trying to get it fine enough for socks. I’m using a sample card and everything! I’ll spin another 2 oz, ply these 2 bobbins together, and report back.
Also, Kristina reminded me that I said I’d be more disciplined about making a Deck the Ball from leftover sock yarn as soon as I finish each sock. So I knocked this out last night while watching a couple of episodes of The Riches on DVD. This is the Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Merino Luxe leftover from my Tesserae socks.
