Tour de Fleece – Week 1

Published July 7, 2012 by kazkitty

Phew! What a busy week! Actually, I spent half of the trying to fight off the flu (or something with flu-like symptoms).. but that gave me plenty of time to make sure I spun every single day.

Day 1: Spun half of a red piece of the Corgi Hill BFL/Silk and a little bit of the Spunky Merino/Bamboo.
TdF Day 1

Day 2: Finished the red BFL/Silk and continued with the Spunky fiber.
TdF Day 2

Day 3: Started a teal piece of BFL/Silk and made more progress on the Spunky fiber.
TdF Day 3

Day 4: Finished the teal BFL/Silk, spun 3 more pieces on the Joy, and took what I had already spun of the Merino/Yak/Silk and plied it. Decided to take the Merino/Yak/Silk out of the TdF lineup and will pick something else.

Day 5: Plied all the BFL/Silk singles.. 3 more chunks of fluff to go! Also spun more of the Spunky fiber.

Day 6: Spun yet more of the Merino/Bamboo.

Day 7: Picked up the Corgi Hill Merino/Yak and spun a little bit. Decided the Moosie is too heavy for fiber that wants to spin this fine, and will probably switch to a support spindle.

I think I’m making good progress so far…

As it stands, I am now here with my goals:

Corgi Hill Farm Merino/Yak/Silk – unknown colorway
Unknown beginning weight. Appx 2.6 oz left to spin.
Currently in progress on the Ashford Joy.
Goal: To finish spinning the singles. Ply into a 2ply yarn if time allows.

Removed from lineup. Will be replaced with Corgi Hill Farm Merino/Cashmere/Silk in Raspberry Cooler

Corgi Hill Farm Humbug BFL/Silk – Puff Pack
Started with 6 oz. Appx 4 oz left to spin. 2.5 oz spun this week; appx 1.5 oz remaining.
Currently in progress on the Bosworth Tulipwood Mini.
Goal: To spin and ply the remaining 8 half oz nests.

Corgi Hill Farm Merino/Yak – Marsala
Started with 2.4 oz. Appx 2.2 oz left to spin.
Currently in progress on the Bosworth Moosie.
Goal: To finish spinning the singles. Ply if time allows. (unsure of how I want to ply this yet)

Spunky Eclectic Merino/Bamboo – Beach Day
Started with 3 oz. Appx 1.5 oz left to spin. Appx 1.1 oz remaining.
Currently in progress on the Bristlecone glindles/twindles.
Goal: To finish spinning the singles and chain ply to a finished yarn.

1 week down, 2 more to go! I think if I actually keep up with spinning every day, I just might make all my goals. 😀
