Quick Spinning Post

I know, I know, I still need to finish my posts about our vacation last month.

I'm going to post a couple of pictures of the spinning I've been doing for the Tour de Fleece on Ravelry for now, though.

First up, the merino and tencel that my Mom bought for me while we were in Idaho.

The singles on the wheel:

The color isn't quite right, but it was almost midnight when I took that picture.

The two-ply yarn on the wheel:

The un-set yarn with a nickel:

And a collage, before the twist was set:

Next is some merino that I bought in June 2008, but haven't done much with. It's 8 ounces, and I got some spun and plied but there's still a lot to go:

It's a bit felted (just a bit, not too bad) so it's requiring a fair bit of prep before I can spin it.

It's going to be worth it though!

And finally, the spinning that I did last night. This is the Anshan's Biscotti colorway from Susan's Spinning Bunny, and it's BFL.

I'm having a good time spinning and working on my WIPs (works-in-progress) for WIP Wrestling (also on Ravelry), so that means spending less time on the computer. Hopefully I'll get the post on our vacation finished soon!


I'm also working on getting stuff ready for teaching four classes (!!!) at Fiber Christmas in July, coming up at the end of the month. I might not be posting much between now and August!

Wow! That merino/tencel is just amazing! Which (if any?) teams are you in for the Tour and Wrestling? I'm doing both as well, though I'm not posting much in the tour because my designated project is deathly boring (plain white and brown singles to be plied together. Someday).
