Wow, almost done. This month has gone by fast!
A bit of catch up.
The Leicester got washed and was combed by my daughter C. This was the first fiber she combed and hopefully she learned what not to do. (Love you C!). I believe this was also the fiber she was working on when she dropped the comb onto her foot.
I had washed 4 ounces of gray Polworth to use for the challenge day, thinking I'd spin it both for the challenge of lace weight, and as a new-to-me fiber, but with my completion of lace weight with the merino/tencel, and since this was the same color as the shirt I'm wearing today, I decided to spin this.
This fiber laughed and stuck it's tongue out at me. Since my usually mode of spinning is to over spin, I've been trying to lighten it up and spin a softer, less twisted yarn. This however kept falling apart and once I realized it was daring me to spin it as tightly as I could we got along just fine.
