Tour de Fleece 2008 results

I finished plying this morning. I underplyed some of it so it was a learning experience too, but I'm still very happy with the results. I also realized last night that I had been plying in the wrong direction for about ten minutes. I had to pull that all off and I just plyed that to itself and got about 10 yards to use as sock toes maybe.

I bought my first bag of silk/wool blend roving today at Knitch. It's fuschia, so whatever I end up making with it will be day-glo. I'm not afraid to wear pink. :)

I also bought some baby alpaca roving. The color is closer to the actual color in the second photo, which is also almost the color of my own hair where there's a little more chrome in it.

    I loved holding it in my hands and dreaming that one day I might be responsible for such spinning. (laugh)
