There has been some spinning!

I have finally caught up with pictures, lots of spinning going on but not much posting. First - some lovely Polwarth pictured above - 2 ply, woolly spun and bulky - finally! Pretty consistent too - this has been my focus - spinning heavier woolly yarns consistently. I am happy with this lovely SCFAntarctica, October club, about 112 yards.
In working towards woolly, heavier weight yarn I spun
up this Border Leicester that was my first indigo dying (almost felted!) then hand carded with some light blue angora. It is about 12 oz worth and it took me to the end to get the hang of long draw. Now I am ready for spinning my next sweater project but more about that in the next post.
This lovely colored BFL/Silk is 187 yards of Spunky Eclectic, August Club Eclectic Jam. It is my best effort at n ply to date - more spinning progress! 3 oz, DK wt..
I have also been working on low twist heavier wt singles, yet another blue in Merino, SCF Olympia and Spunky Eclectic Romney Tuxedo Rose which is my most consistent low twist single to date. Next post - Knitting projects!
