Yep.....the Tour de Fleece is in full swing again. Of course I'm back on the Team of Wonder and the best part of the Tour is seeing all the fantastic yarns that are being created.
In my last post, I shared the last of my Yarn Hollow roving that needed to be spun. My first priority was to get this done to free up my bobbins.
I'm currently spinning some of my Suri/Merino that I dyed a nutmeg color.
I'm also moving along nicely on my Stripe Study shawl using a skein of the 100% suri lace weight yarn I dyed last week. I'm pairing it with a purple merino/silk skein of Cascade Heritage fingering weight.
KellyJ suggested using the different yarn weights and I must admit I was concerned about how it was going to knit up but she's very persuasive. She said "have I ever steered you wrong".......trust me"! Once again....she was right. I'm loving how it's looking.
So that's my week in review...... just want to leave you with a couple of pics that brought a smile to my face when I got home from work yesterday.
