A bowl full of yarn
I didn’t hit my lofty goal for the Tour de Fleece but I spun a whole lot of yarn: 34 ounces.Â I spun 22 ounces of the dyed-by-my-hand BFL, 4 ounces of fat 2-ply, 4 ounces of Lynne Vogel colored Merino/Bamboo/Silk, and 4 ounces of lofty thick-and-thin. It was enough and I had fun.
I learned that I need a lot of variety in my spinning. There were days at the wheel when I just couldn’t face any more of my blue/purple BFL, that more than lack of time kept me from spinning my dreamed-about 2 pounds of BFL yarn.
I also learned I need a whole lot more practice on my thick-and-thinÂ yarn.
What about you — did you hit yourÂ Tour de Fleece goal? Any tips for thick-and-thin yarn?
