Tour de Fleece -Day Five

Happy Independence Day! (NSA approved message)

Onto the spinning. I’m finished with one of the three projects for Tour de Fleece.

First, fingering weight BFL wool, spun on my Lovely Asciano spindle. So smooth and lovely that I have to figure out a good pattern for it.

Second, a yarn very different from the first, a wooly untamable kind of funky tweed. I love it!

I love this yarn – it’s fluffy, bouncy, full of texture. This is just the first half, so more fun to come!

Today I’m at the Marin County Fair to demo spinning with my much more expert friend, Judy.  I’m sure we will evangelize some into the fiber world.

  1. Fingering weight. Is that the same as sock yarn? Did you come through this time? Love the red. The other almost looks like a boucle. Any ideas what it will become?

  2. Cathy, yes, fingering weight is often used for socks, but this is a two-ply yarn, and not twisted enough for socks – I’m thinking lace at the moment. I did make sock yarn finally earlier this year, ths socks are here: http://wp.me/poWUd-I5

    As for the other yarn, it’s not quite a boucle, but definitely in the art-yarn territory. I’m thinking it’ll turn into a hat and cowl set. Some very simple stitch to let the yarn shine!
