After doing a very skinny 4 ply yarn last week, I decided to pick out something from the stash that would spin up a little more quickly. I chose a bag of Polwarth/Silk from Southern Cross Fibre. I know from working with Polwarth from David in the past that I like to spin it fairly thick.
The silk in mix gave the singles an extra glow. I even thought about leaving the yarn in this state:
Instead I wound it up and went for a 2 ply. I’ve got about 160 yards of two-ply from about 100g. It was a quick and satisfying spin.
In Tour de France KAL news, I did the draw for prizes in my Ravelry group earlier this week. It was the quickest & easiest settling of prizes I’ve done yet. Everyone wanted a different skein of yarn and they are in the mail now.
My posts & info will be even more sparse than usual for the rest of August because our family will be out & about enjoying the rest of the summer vacation.
