Tour de Fleece Day Four Recap

Taking a break from Bluebell to check in with Team Jacob Junkies.

I separated Emerin's white and gray, let OVNF run the white and carded the gray myself. If you remember from the earlier picture, it was pretty mottled...but pretty. I tried to leave it mottled and spin it that way, but in the end just couldn't do it.

It probably would have been really neat, but as each batt was mottled a little bit differently, my 'everything has to be just so' brain couldn't handle it. I divided, paired up different grays and carded it two more times.

No one will ever accuse me of being too colorful :-/.

This is pretty too though.

I just love this basket. I picked it up a couple years ago and can't remember the maker's name or business. Does anyone recognize it?

An an ugly spindle shot just to record how far I'm going to come during the Tour. My goal is to be able to wind a spindle half as neatly as Michelle. We ain't there yet, but we are having fun and learning new things ;-).

You're doing great. I haven't even learned to use the new drop spindle I recently bought.
Love the color of the fleece. It's gorgeous.

Your roving photos look so squeezably soft!
I thought I was picky separating ivory from light grey but you have me beat. Only the hairdresser will know the difference.
The spindle work looks lovely to me. You are so consistent with your spin.
You are running a good race!

Just beautiful.
I have yet to venture into that territory but it is so, so lovely.

Michelle said...

Can't take an ugly picture of a Jenkins spindle; nope, you can't. (-;

I've completely forgotten how to spindle. I wanted to take mine with me this weekend but I'm afriad I might look like I'm having some sort of fit and someone will call the paramedics.
