Finished spinning Oberyn's fleece into this two ply yarn. This was all I got from his fleece as it was pretty chopped up for whatever reason. Not the shearer's fault, the wool just didn't want to come off!
|Oberyn 2 ply, will wash today|
I washed Elinor's fleece, this pretty grey Kat and will finish drying outside today - looks like we will have a warm day with no wind, perfect for outdoor drying. Then I plan to spin into yarn.
|Sensible Elinor. Except that she stole and ate a plastic glove out of my lambing kit when my back was turned during Lambapalooza 2|
I am carding Mrs Hughes, I just love this fleece. She has 3 different levels of grey and a good amount of all three so its a lot of fun to work my way through all the variation. This will go into batts for my spinners.
|Medium grey on left, steel grey in center, light grey to the right. No "shades of grey" jokes please... Oh all right, if you must.|
|Ever proper Mrs. Hughes|
Started a white hat from the yarn left from the Bousta Beanie and Knitted Knockers- thank you Elara. Used my new cast on technique, German Cast on which I learned from making the fingerless mitts. Should make the ribbed band a little more flexible, we'll see.
|I always think Elara could have gone a little less with the eyeliner.|
And working on spinning another self striping yarn, 3 colors, shades of brown.
