Finally I’ve spun and plied enough yarn for a sweater!
Southern Cross Fibres Falkland, color: Dirt.
This is about 1,000 yards of 13 w.p.i (DK-ish) Falkland 2-ply. There is 200 or so more yards on the ends of bobbins, still to be plied.
This is the first sweater’s worth I’ve ever spun, and it certainly won’t be the last.
I love the bits of blue.
I have pulled together enough fiber for three more sweaters from the stash – two will be mixy matchy, one isÂ natural colored Bond fiber. This one is going to be Tappen Zee, one of the others will be a version of Party Mix.
I’m hooked and can’t wait to set these skeins and start knitting. It’s a good thing I’m not going to Rhinebeck this weekend or I would come home with many, many sweaters to spin and knit.
To all of my fiber friends heading to Rhinebeck travel safely, take lots of pictures, buy lots of fiber and hug each other for me!
